Founded in 1987, à la Carte is a series of about 30 events and experiences that are sponsored and underwritten 100% by board members and friends of the Association of the Louisville Orchestra (ALO). Every dollar our patrons spend to purchase tickets to these events is donated to the Louisville Orchestra. ALO fundraising to date, primarily from à la Carte events, amounts to more than $2.7 million donated to the Louisville Orchestra. Join us to help keep the music playing!
