The LSO will go back where it all began, Lubbock High School, February 19th for its annual Family Concert. The concert and activities will be free to the public with performances by the Lubbock High School Chamber Orchestra conducted by Alejos Anaya, and the LSO, conducted by David Cho.
On October 22, 1946, Lubbock Symphony hosted its first ever concert in the auditorium of Lubbock High School. The concert was headed by its founding conductor, William A. Harrod, whose recent passing reminds the South Plains community of the LSO’s purpose: to enrich the greater community it serves through quality symphonic performances and educational experiences
Now, 70 years later, the LSO has come back to its roots in the same, newly remodeled auditorium! Before the concert, experience memorable family activities like the instrument petting zoo, conducting station, and dance station. The concert will feature timeless music scores from “Harry Potter,” “E.T.,” “Superman,” “Mission: Impossible,” “Psycho,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and “Star Wars.” Come enjoy legendary cinematic music as the Lubbock Symphony returns to its origins and celebrates the up-and-coming talent in the Lubbock High School Chamber Orchestra.
