About the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra

“For a City of 22,000 to boast a symphony orchestra — especially one that is healthy and solvent — is not exactly common.” Those words appeared in a SOUTH BEND TRIBUNE article in 1982 when the La Porte Symphony was six years old. Today it is a community integrated organization that is a vital part of the area’s culture.” –Mary Utley, LCSO Historian 1933-2014

The La Porte County Symphony Orchestra is a part of the vibrant arts landscape of Northwest Indiana and serves the 110,000 residents of La Porte County and regions beyond. Now beginning its 47th season, LCSO is a cornerstone of the performing arts for the area. What began as a small community orchestra has developed into a highly visible semi-professional orchestra of 60 musicians serving audiences across seven counties.

The orchestra season includes three symphonic subscription concerts: two pops and one classical. The season kicks off with Hoosier Star, a trademarked gala fundraiser and vocal competition, now in its 14th year.. In addition to contracted summer concerts, LCSO partners with the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte for their annual Holiday at the Pops event. The excellence of LCSO’s educational outreach is significant for the area and the Children’s Educational Concert has been recognized as one of the most successful such events in the nation by the American String Teacher’s Association and the National School Orchestra Association
