LSU Orchestral Program

About Us

The LSU School of Music supports a wide array of orchestral activities including a full symphony, chamber orchestra, and opera orchestra. The Orchestral Program presents more than ten performances each academic year, including:

  • Classical Concerts
  • Chamber Orchestra Performances
  • The Concerto Concert
  • Masterworks (in conjunction with the Choral Division)
  • LSU Opera Productions

Additionally, the Orchestral Program hosts the recently renovated Lucile Blum Lending Library, which is a substantial collection of orchestral scores and parts. The Blum Collection provides academic and professional orchestras the opportunity to rent scores and instrument parts for a low fee, during the Fall and Spring semesters of the academic year.
