Welcome to the Longmont Symphony Orchestra


Announcing our 2018-19 Season: Musical Journeys

The LSO is proud to announce our 52nd season for the orchestra, and the organization’s second season with Elliot Moore as music director.

For the 2018-19 season, the LSO will present six concerts at Vance Brand Civic Auditorium, a July 4th concert at Thompson Park, a holiday candlelight concert, two Nutcracker performances with the Boulder Ballet, two chamber orchestra concerts at Longmont Museum’s Stewart Auditorium, and a pair of children’s concerts for all St. Vrain Valley School District 5th graders.

“For the connecting thread of the LSO’s 2018-19 season, we’ve chosen ‘Musical Journeys.’ Concert highlights include a Juilliard-trained pianist from Longmont’s sister city of Chino, Japan; French music from Ravel and Debussy; a ‘Sounds of America’ concert with music by Libby Larsen, Samuel Barber and Aaron Copland; carols from around the world for our holiday concert; and a space-themed pops concert,” said Music Director Elliot Moore. “We’ll also continue our cycle of Beethoven Symphonies at the Longmont Museum, and our popular family programming with The Nutcracker Ballet in December and the world premiere of ‘A Child’s Book of Animals’ for our family concert in January.”

LSO Guild’s Annual Garden Tour

The 2018 Garden Tour will be held June 8 & 9 from 9 AM to 3 PM

The LSO Guild Garden Tour is a wonderful tradition that showcases Longmont’s gardening talents and features six lovely gardens. This two-day event promises to offer diverse garden designs and layouts and will give you gardening ideas for your own garden.

The 2018 Tour features a varied bouquet of landscapes from an intimate, prairie-inspired hideaway of natural grasses and plants; a fairyland of gardens with gnomes, koi and native wildlife; a quiet old-town sanctuary;  a surprising midtown treasure featuring a unique sunken patio with a water cascade, a ‘to-die-for’ outdoor living space, and a treasure of antique cars; and rounding out the tour are two close proximity homes featuring complementary landscapes.

This year’s homes are located at:

  • 1302 Carolina Avenue
  • 766 Sanctuary Lane
  • 2481 Collyer Street
  • 1324 15th Avenue
  • 2134 and 2138 River Walk Lane

All gardens are in Longmont, and all proceeds benefit the Longmont Symphony Orchestra. Tickets: $15.  

Tickets can be purchased online or at Duran’s Hobby Acres and Garden Center, The Flower Bin, Adornables, Front Range Mercantile, Longmont Florist, and the Longmont Symphony Office (519 Main St. – Rear Suite).
