Formed in 1991, the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra is the only full-time professional orchestra in the Gulf South and the only full-time musician-governed and collaboratively operated orchestra in the United States.
Support them in their efforts by attending the LPO’s annual “Fabergé Opus Ball” on Saturday, April 12. The evening begins at the Civic Theatre with a performance by virtuoso Russian-American pianist Lola Astanova with the LPO and guest conductor Jahja Ling and follows with a seated dinner and dancing at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
Chair Marilyn Dittmann, Musical Director and Principal Conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto, CEO James W. Boyd and trustee Paul J. Leaman Jr. invite you to experience a night of once-in-a-lifetime music, food and dancing to support our only-in-N ew-Orleans LPO.
Learn more and purchase tickets by calling 253-6530 or visiting LpoMusic.com/OpusBall.
Special thanks to ball chair Marilyn Dittmann for all her assistance.
