Celebrating their 53rd season and third with music director Elliot Moore the Longmont Symphony Orchestra entitled the 2019-20 season “Music is Life.”
“Each of our concerts offers something unique for music lovers—whether it’s featuring artists with non‐ traditional solo instruments, as with Jennifer Higdon’s Percussion Concerto, or celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday with his ‘Eroica’ Symphony and LSO’s first‐ever performance of Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony at Longmont Museum’s Stewart Auditorium,” said Elliot Moore, LSO’s music director.
“In addition to our presentation of The Nutcracker with the Boulder Ballet, we’ve made our Gentle Nutcracker into an annual event. This, combined with our robust outreach in schools, 5th Grade Concerts, and a Family Concert—featuring the timeless classic Peter and the Wolf—shows how music can unite the entire spectrum of our community and touch people’s lives.”
