Who are we?

The Loveland Orchestra is a group of dedicated volunteers committed to providing high-quality performances of classical music to the Loveland community and Northern Colorado. Our members come from all over the area, and we are always looking for new members to help our orchestra grow!

Our mission statement

The mission of The Loveland Orchestra is to:

  1. Promote the education and appreciation of high-quality orchestral music in the Loveland community.
  2. Provide an opportunity for area musicians to share in performing and recreating some of the finest musical works ever written.
  3. Provide musical experiences and opportunities for educating young people in and around the city of Loveland.
  4. Foster the development of music in this area by assisting and cooperating with other artistic organizations within the community.

The Loveland Orchestra is a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization

What we do

The orchestra performs a full season of concerts every year, including four regular season concerts and a special all-Mozart concert in January to celebrate the birthday of the master composer. We are also planning to add a pops concert to our yearly schedule.

How you can help

1) Become a member

We are always looking for new musicians to join our group, either as regular performing members or subs. At the moment we are actively seeking musicians for the following parts/sections:



Trombone/Bass Trombone/Tuba


Other instruments are encouraged to contact us as well. As a volunteer group, our personnel needs can change from concert to concert.

2) Volunteer

Even if you don't play an instrument, we still need your help! Volunteers do so much for us - working the box office, taking tickets, coordinating refreshments at the concerts, serving on the board of directors - if you can think of it, we need a volunteer to do it! If you are interested in helping out, please contact us to find out about current volunteer opportunities.

3) Donate

As a volunteer, not-for-profit group, most of our funding comes from individuals and businesses that believe in the importance of the arts in our community. There are many ways to help us financially. Businesses can purchase advertising space in our programs. Businesses or individuals can sponsor a piece of music, a concert, a player in the orchestra, our concertmaster, or even our conductor himself! General contributionsare also welcome, and any donation is greatly appreciated. All donors, no matter what the level of their contribution, are recognized in our concert programs.

4) Come to a concert - and bring a friend!

Posters, newspaper ads and radio announcements can only do so much to bring audience members to our concerts. The best kind of advertising we can get is word of mouth - come to a concert, and if you enjoy it, let friends and family know! And of course, we hope you would return as well!

Thank you again for your interest in The Loveland Orchestra. We hope to hear from you, or see you at one of our concerts!
