About the Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra

The Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra is a non-profit organization that provides the best classical music performances for central New Hampshire during the fall, winter, and spring. Not only does the orchestra provide an opportunity for musicians of varying abilities to come together to make music, but through educational and other performances it hopes to increase the exposure to and appreciation of those compositions that comprise the standard repertoire.

The New Hampshire Music Festival originally established the LRSO in 1975. In the spring of 1988 a board of directors was formed, which then created the orchestra as it is today. Over the years the orchestra has become a premier community organization, utilizing both professional and amateur musicians. Young music students are encouraged to join the orchestra to augment their private studies.
