ALO's mission is to provide funding and resources to support the Louisville Orchestra, to create opportunities for youth to excel in performing and appreciating symphonic music, and to broaden the audience and support of the Louisville Orchestra throughout the region.
The ALO continues to be one of the top contributors to the LO, donating more than $2.5 million since its inception in 1944. Comprised of 350 members and led by a 35-member board, its volunteers raise money and awareness for the LO by hosting themed, unique dinner parties, bus trips to interesting venues and other special events throughout the community. 100% of ticket prices go to support the ALO; hosts underwrite all costs of the events.
