The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra is the only musician-owned and collaboratively managed professional symphony in the United States. Founded in 1991 by musicians from the former New Orleans Symphony, the 67-member ensemble performs a full 36-week concert season in and around the New Orleans area and hosts an array of Classics, Casual Classics, Spotlight, Family, Education and Outreach concerts.
Beginning with the September opening concerts of the 2008-2009 season and concluding with the last in May 2009, the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra will perform all nine of Ludwig van Beethoven’s extraordinary symphonies.
Scattered throughout the season to complement these heroic and much-loved creations will be endearing musical gifts from such old friends as Brahms, Debussy, Mozart, Bach, Sibelius and Mendelssohn. Wrapping up each concert package will be intriguing and dynamic works by less familiar composers as well as some by intriguing new ones.
Casual Classics, to be performed once again in Jefferson Parish, invites audiences to journey around the world without the stress of packing
Next season’s Spotlight series brings back the Latin sounds of Mariachi Cobre in an encore performance of the Pan American Life Fiesta Sinfonica concert. Also in this five-concert series will be a unique performance of the movie music of Terence Blanchard; a seductive Symphonic Tango night; a Five by Design “swing” evening; and a celebration of the Rat Pack favorites as Broadway stars Sal Viviano, Nat Chandler and Eric Jordan Young pay tribute to Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis and Dino!
