About the Show
Founded in 1946, the Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is one of the oldest community orchestras in the Greater Philadelphia area. Celebrating more than 60 years of music-making, its season runs from October to April. This year the orchestra will present five concerts under the leadership of Irving Ludwig, music director since 1991. Mr. Ludwig brings to the podium his many years of experience as a violinist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Although the talented musicians who form the core of the 75+ members of the LSO come from many walks of life, they all share a strong love of music. The repertoire includes orchestral music from the Baroque through contemporary classics, including time-honored favorites and interesting rarities.
