LSYO Spring Concert Excellent

A remarkably good concert. Graduating seniors honored. Great professionalism in such young musicians in both the String Ensemble and the LSYO.

An evening worth more than words can say. Champion role modelling, mentoring, lifelong learning, new discoveries, and a great deal of inspiration – a truly harmonious event!

Travel with the LSO
Passports, Please! – October 24, 2023
From beginning to end, this was a wonderful concert! The LaGrange Symphony Orchestra rode into this concert at full gallop and with full western spirit. The American sound is expansive, energetic, and rhythmic and the LSO brought it! This was a rousing rendition of Aaron Copeland’s Hoe-Down from Rodeo.
Standing Ovations
SUSTAINABILITY – April 25, 2023
The programming, the delivery, the reaction with two standing ovations - all were fantastic. This season finale concert of the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra (LSO) will be remembered, there's no doubt about that.

EDUCATION – March 21, 2023

Played with confidence and flair, these pieces really were larger-than-life and inspirational. The audience wanted more, which I believe is the point of the Education program.

Sounds of Peace – December 10, 2019
A PATRON COMMENTED THIS CONCERT AS BEING, “THE VERY BEST CHRISTMAS CONCERT YET!!”  OTHERS WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE WITH THEM. Friends and family gathered for the LSO holiday concert, Sounds of Peace, with smiles, hugs, and happy chatter. The lobby had a special delight as “The Soundpost,” a group formed by members of the LSYO, under the direction of Celeste Myall, serenaded the Patrons with pre-concert holiday classics. They warmed hearts as everyone came in from the cold. This was an extra-touch that greatly added to the holiday atmosphere. The excitement of a sold-out house paired with the wonderful program line-up was clear throughout the auditorium.  The buzz of happy conversation gave way to anticipatory quiet within an instant, as the concert was about to start.
