LPO Volunteers

LPO Volunteers is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to service and support for the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra.

Since the early 1990s, the all-volunteer group has raised more than $2 million through its solely owned businesses – The Encore Shop and Symphony Book Fair – and contributed thousands of volunteer hours to support the LPO.
