After 23 seasons of magic, LCSO Artistic Director/Conductor, Philip J. Bauman, has turned over the baton to the next generation of orchestral leadership for La Porte County and surrounding areas!

This season, we invite three Guest Conductors to join us in La Porte and Michigan City for a week for one of three season concerts. During this time, they will tour our beautiful community, make a school visit, attend a Friends of the Symphony luncheon, be the guest of honor at our meet-and-greet events, and of course meet with the LCSO Selection Committee. The visit will end with the Guest Conductor’s LCSO concert event. Each Maestro will bring their own styles and approaches to the podium, and the audience and other valuable stakeholders will have the opportunity to evaluate and report their perspectives on the performances.

BRAVO, Maestro! The Search Continues!
