Simon Woods, the president and chief executive of the League of American Orchestras recently said: “Orchestras are already thinking deeply about the implications of the post-COVID world, and not only those in major urban areas. In smaller cities, as well as suburban and rural areas, orchestras can release the power of music to aid in our communal healing.”
Our 20-21 season was so challenging. With the generosity of our community, your Longmont Symphony Orchestra (LSO) not only survived, but we “surthrived” in this time of COVID. Thank you!
On July 1, 2021, I became the president of the Board of Directors for the LSO. In this role, I follow the effective, long-term leadership of Carol Minelli. Thank goodness, she continues on as immediate past president. We have a dynamic, committed, active board. Our musicians are talented and dedicated. Our staff is committed to serving you.
We are blessed to have Catherine Beeson as our executive director and Elliot Moore as our conductor and music director. They are sophisticated professionals who are dedicated to leading LSO to become a symphony orchestra recognized for its artistic excellence. We remain dedicated to enrich, inspire, and serve our extended community.
Our 21-22 season is about halfway through. Because of the continuing challenge of COVID-19, we have contingency plans in place to ensure that we will offer you our best concert season yet no matter what the virus does, via in-person and online viewing opportunities.
Simon Woods is right. Orchestras can “release the power of music to aid in our communal healing”.
LSO remains dedicated to present you with music based engagement opportunities that serve as a catalyst which deepens awareness of our shared humanity.
Contact us anytime with your ideas to help LSO become all it can be.
Our best to all of you!
LSO Board of Directors
