Louisville Civic Orchestra

Civic Orchestra 4

The oldest, continuously performing orchestra in Louisville is reviving an old moniker. What started as the Young Hebrew Men’s Association symphony in 1915, merged with the Louisville Civic Arts Association in 1930, a group that is also an immediate predecessor to the Louisville Orchestra. Over the years the Louisville Civic Orchestra (LCO) has undergone a series of name changes, the most well-known being the JCC Orchestra, but for the past few years has been embracing one of its original titles.

Now directed by Jason Raff, the all-volunteer orchestra is performing on Friday, April 29th, 2016, with Louisville Orchestra cellist Nicholas Finch. Daniel Gilliam talks with Raff about the history of the group and this weekend’s concert.
