LCSO 50th Anniversary
The La Porte County Symphony Orchestra is celebrating its 50th Anniversary season! 50 years ago the LCSO was a small group of volunteer musicians. Now, the LCSO is a semi-professional paid orchestra with a season of concerts designed for people of all ages and musical tastes.
We are proud to provide the La Porte, Michigan City, and surrounding Northwest Indiana communities with music and experiences often not found outside of large, metropolitan areas.
