LPO Volunteers

About the 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 $2.6 million through its solely owned businesses – The Encore Shop and Symphony Book Fair – and contributed thousands of volunteer hours to support the LPO.


Now seeking new members! Join the LPO Volunteers today & support the country’s only musician-owned orchestra.

Volunteers are a crucial to the success of the LPO. In addition to running the organization’s two solely owned businesses – The Encore Shop and Symphony Book Fair – LPO Volunteers contribute hundreds of man hours annually, welcoming guest musicians into their homes, hosting small private concerts that supplement musician incomes, assisting with orchestra auditions, and helping with many other needs that support the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. LPO Volunteers welcomes all levels of commitment – from single-event volunteers at Book Fair and Bucket Brigade, to full engagement in many events, to dues-only members. There are so many ways to contribute, so please consider offering your time and talents.
