About the Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra

Founded in 1946 at the First Presbyterian Church in Lansdowne, the Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is one of the oldest community orchestras in the Greater Philadelphia area.

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.

Our season runs from October to April. This year the orchestra will present five concerts. The repertoire includes orchestral music from the Baroque through contemporary classics, including time-honored favorites and interesting rarities.
