2018-2019 Season: Auditions & more!

The LSO is proud to announce plans for our 2018-2019 season — our 19th season of blending science and music! Once again, we’ll be led by music director Chelsea Gallo.

Our concerts will be earlier in the year than usual, thanks to available weekend dates at Hill Auditorium:

Saturday, December 8, 2018 – 8 p.m.

featuring an overture to be announced soon, and two major orchestral works:

Richard Strauss Macbeth 

Arnold Schoenberg’s orchestral arrangement of Brahms Piano Quartet Op. 25

Sunday, April 14, 2019 – 4 p.m.

featuring Dr. David Brown, co-winner of the LSO Concerto Competition, performing Nielsen’s Flute Concerto
