Longwood Symphony Orchestra


Since the early 80s, the orchestra has presented public concerts at New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall, and since 1991, each concert has raised money for a different Community Partner, benefiting underserved populations throughout the Greater Boston region.

Nationally recognized for its musical quality, innovative programming, and unique model of community engagement, the orchestra’s members are primarily healthcare professionals from Boston’s leading hospitals and universities, including doctors, medical students, research scientists, nurses, therapists, and caregivers–many of whom pursued music studies before turning to medicine.

The LSO’s Healing Art of Music™ program, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in the 2011-2012 season, has raised over $1,500,000 for worthy causes and has been nationally recognized with the League of American Orchestras’ MetLife Award for Excellence in Community Engagement and the highest cultural recognition in Massachusetts, the Commonwealth Award.
