The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra’s mission is to transform people and communities through music. Steeped in history yet focused on innovation, the LPO is the only full-time collaboratively governed and operated orchestra in the United States. Rooted in a culturally diverse community with a two-hundred-year orchestral music tradition, the LPO sets the standard for orchestral programming and performance in Louisiana. For our sixty-seven musicians, achieving the highest level of artistry is integrally linked with a deeply personal investment in our organization and our community. Our audiences hear, see, and feel the increased passion and enthusiasm that results from our musicians’ involvement in planning each performance.
