Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra:
Happy Holidays with the LSO

Saturday, Dec 19, 7:30 p.m. ~ ONLINE

Our popular annual Holiday Concert will be offered this year as a FREE online broadcast, on Saturday, December 19th. Originally planned for a live audience, this program has pivoted to an online performance, due to recent changes in COVID-19 restrictions.

Our musicians will be performing many holiday favorites, along with some special guests… the Bells of the Blue Ridge handbell choir, and “Old Fuzzy Face”, Lynchburg’s favorite Santa!

So mark your calendars and plan to cozy up on the couch as the LSO presents our holiday gift to you on Saturday, Dec 19th, at 7:30pm.  You’ll be able to access the broadcast by clicking the link below:

We hope that you will show your support for the LSO by considering a year-end donation that makes events like this possible.  Consider donating the typical cost of your concert tickets, or perhaps a more generous contribution that will support our local musicians and our ongoing educational initiatives during this difficult season.  Thank you for supporting your local symphony orchestra!

Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra Strings: Inspired by Folk

Saturday, Oct 10, 7:30 p.m. ~ Academy Center of the Arts

The Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra returns to live performance with a diverse program emphasizing the folk origins of many classical works.

Featuring a group of 20 players from the LSO’s string section, this program will present folk-influenced music by Gustav Holst, Bela Bartok, and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.  This program will also feature the music of two groundbreaking Black composers, Harry Burleigh and Duke Ellington, and a tribute to LSO charter member Jean H. Raas, with the music of Gustav Mahler.

This event has limited, socially-distanced seating available, so get your tickets soon!

We’ll also be hosting a livestream broadcast for those who cannot attend in person.
