Student Involvement

Student participation in the LSO has been a core component of the orchestra’s mission since its inception in 2003. Students can gain valuable experience by playing beside professional musicians in a formal orchestra setting.

Small Ensemble Performances

In an effort to reach out to the residents of Anne Arundel County, the LSO has organized two performing groups: the Londontowne Brass and the Londontowne Strings. Through these ensembles, a myriad of community residents have been able to experience quality live music first-hand in a variety of venues. The musicians in both groups are highly seasoned professionals and regular members of the LSO. Their repertoire includes an array of music that spans from the Baroque period to the present, and includes pop tunes and songs from musicals.
