New Orleans may be famous around the world for Mardi Gras, but did you know that we have a wonderful Orchestra?
The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) formed in 1991 and is the oldest full-time musician–governed and collaboratively-operated orchestra in the United States. LPO is dedicated to maintaining live orchestral music and a full-scale symphonic orchestra as an integral part of the cultural and educational life of the New Orleans area, the entire state of Louisiana, and the Gulf South region. The group offers full 36 week season with more than 120 performances from classics to pop to family and park and community concerts across the multi-parish areas.
For the Holidays, LPO is having its annual holiday celebration.
