THE ASSOCIATION OF THE LOUISVILLE ORCHESTRA
The ALO is one of the top contributors to the Louisville Orchestra, donating more than $2.7 million since its inception in 1944. Comprised of about 350 members and led by a 35-member board, the ALO raises money and resources to support the Louisville Orchestra, creates opportunities for youth music education and competition, and broadens the audience of the Louisville Orchestra throughout the region.
The ALO sponsors a wide variety of parties, outings, and day tours to various local venues. 100% of the ticket cost supports the mission of the ALO.
Restaurants sponsor an ALO night and donate a portion of the proceeds to the ALO.
All honorarium and remembrance gifts are directed to music education for young people in the region.
A hallmark event of the Louisville Orchestra since 1944, young musicians in the region compete each fall for the opportunity to perform as guest soloist with the Louisville Orchestra and for a monetary award.
The ALO provides lunches for the Louisville Orchestra musicians at these concerts for 4th and 5th graders in the area.
Preconcert activities for children.
ALO members volunteer for pre-concert activities for children at Family concerts, including the instrument playground. Young students who experience Louisville Orchestra concerts get hands-on experience with musical instruments refurbished or purchased by the ALO.
ALO members help grow audience interest and serve as advocates for the Louisville Orchestra by attending Louisville Orchestra concerts and by promoting Louisville Orchestra news and events throughout the city and the region.
