Special guest Officer Craig Mansanares of the Longmont police department conducts the Washington Post March by John Philip Sousa.  Officer Mansanares was the 2020 winner of LSO’s Superconductor contest.  He worked with Music Director Elliot Moore to prepare for the concert.  “Craig is so engaging and did a great job.  The orchestra just loved him!” said Moore.


When the LSO and City of Longmont Community Services staff needed to begin planning for a successful July 4th concert at Thompson Park concert, the COVID19 public health protocols were still very uncertain. The LSO in partnership with the City of Longmont’s Community Services determined that the July 4th Concert at Thompson Park would be yet another casualty of COVID 19. The City of Longmont funds this important community event each year and was able to fund this year’s virtual concert, making the broadcast program a possibility. All of us look forward to a return of large-scale live concert events in Longmont, and especially our Independence Day concert in the park!

Music & Moore 

We have created a TV show in partnership with the Longmont Symphony Orchestra and Longmont Public Media, called “Music & Moore.” In this show, we talk about great music with great musicians and put a lot of humor into the mix to keep it light and fun. From children & music students to lay music enthusiasts & sophisticated connoisseurs of symphonic repertoire — everyone will enjoy Music & Moore!

 To view past videos created by our Musicians and the first episode of Music  & Moore visit our YouTube Channel



We have entered a new realm, but as Creatives, we will find new ways to connect with you through music. Join us on online for the #MusicToLiftOurSpirits initiative where we share orchestra music from the LSO and orchestras around the world. We are posting performances of symphonic works that I have hand-picked for you. We are also including small solo performances by your LSO musicians, light-hearted musical videos, me playing my cello, musical jokes, funny moments from rehearsals with famous conductors, and some of my thoughts on great conductors of the past. Also, I have created a Spotify playlist that you can listen to, designed to accompany you on your day of social distancing.  https://bit.ly/LSOplaylist
