The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1991 by musicians of the now defunct New Orleans Symphony. Today, the LPO is the only musician-owned and collaboratively managed professional symphony in the country. Led by music director Carlos Miguel Prieto, the ensemble plays a full 36-week concert season with a Classics series, a Casual Classics series, Family concerts and Education/Outreach concerts. For concert goers who can’t make it to one of the LPO’s fantastic events, the symphony puts out a podcast of some of its best performances as well as conversations with the music director and soloists, which is available through the website. Subscriptions are available to each series in a variety of packages.
