The Longmont Symphony Orchestra (LSO) has announced its 2017‐18 season, entitled “New Frontiers.” It is the 51st season for the orchestra, and the organization’s first season with Elliot Moore as music director. On July 1, 2017, Moore succeeds Dr. Robert Olson, who retired after 34 years at the helm.
For the 2017‐18 season, Moore will conduct all rehearsals and performances: six subscription concerts at Vance Brand Civic Auditorium, a July 4th concert at Thompson Park, a holiday candlelight concert, two Nutcracker
performances with the Boulder Ballet, a pair of children’s concerts for all St. Vrain Valley School District 5th graders, and a chamber orchestra concert at Stewart Auditorium in the Longmont Museum.
“There is no question that the LSO’s 51st season will be filled with new frontiers. We’re thrilled to present music by two world‐renowned local composers being brought to Longmont audiences for the first time: the 2016
Pulitzer Prize finalist Carter Pann and Longmont‐based composer Michael Udow. We’ll also feature a diverse mix of classical, pops, and family concerts for a season to be remembered for its compelling musical narratives,” said Music Director Elliot Moore.
