Each of us has experienced the transformational power of music. Our most profound moments and memorable rights of passage are accompanied by the rich sounds of music. From an intimate Bach concerto to a grand Beethoven symphony, music awakens the human soul. If you have never experienced the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra [LSO], make your plans to do so soon.

Professional symphonic music is a meaningful amenity in any community.  The LSO’s subscription performances, civic and extensive music education services enhance quality of life for residents throughout the South Plains.  However, ticket sales account for only 1/3 of the LSO’s annual operating expenses. The generosity of LSO patrons, people just like you, make it possible for the orchestra to continue to provide transformational music in our community.  Take a moment to consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
