The Livingston Symphony Orchestra is one of the finest regional ensembles in the State of New Jersey. With roots in suburban Essex County, the group has been delighting audiences since 1956. Livingston Symphony Orchestra continues to bring together the community of music lovers from far and wide to celebrate the greatest works ever composed.
We'd like to thank Guest Conductor Lou Kosma and Guest Artist Adam Laurence Herskowitz for helping us put on an incredible season opening concert on Saturday, November 8th. It was a pleasure to work with them in the first of our five concerts this year.
NEXT REHEARSAL: Tuesday, December 16th, 2014 at 7:30PM. Location is the Livingston High School Orchestra room, 30 Robert Harp Dr, Livingston NJ. Pieces being rehearsed: To Be Decided. This is our first rehearsal with Guest Conductor Adam Glaser, and we do not have another until January 6th, so it's critical that everyone be there.
LSO 2014-2015 Concert Season
This will be a year of big changes for the Livingston Symphony Orchestra, as our Conductor of 30 years, Maestro Istvan Jaray, stepped-down as our Conductor and Musical Director at the end of the 2013-2014 season. We will be having a series of 5 guest conductors while we search for the conductor who will best fit the needs of the LSO.
