Each concert in the 2022/23 lineup contains at least one distinguished guest artist. Five are shown above and there is actually a sixth! At our season finale concert we are additionally pleased to present the first-place winner of the 2023 LSO Young Artists Competition for strings. This event and announcement will take place in February 2023, and the subsequent public performance in April of 2023 will undoubtedly be magnificent.

You will notice that one artist is a narrator. Professional storyteller, actress, and educator Carol Cain will assist with the education repertoire section of our March family-oriented concert. The full repertoire is listed below in a closer look at our March concert. A few highlights are Williams: Star Wars, Anderson: Jazz Legato, and Badelt: Pirates of the Caribbean. Plus, March is also our annual side-by-side with the LSYO!
