Orchestral Studies

The LSU Orchestral Studies area provides a robust, fulfilling musical experience for students and the community. Audiences enjoy exciting and creative programming, while students have to opportunity to collaborate with artists, composers, and LSU’s world-renowned faculty. We offer a variety of opportunities for music majors and talented non-majors to study ensemble performance skills through a wide range of repertoire, and we serve as a resource for the greater orchestral and educational community of Louisiana.  The LSU Symphony Orchestra, the program’s flagship ensemble, is recognized as one of the premiere college orchestras in the Southeast for its artistic excellence, innovation, commitment to diversity, and collaboration.
