2017-18 Season: “To My Friends Pictured Within”

This phrase is how Edward Elgar chose to dedicate his masterpiece, Enigma Variations, in which each movement musically depicts one of his close friends. This season, we borrow Elgar’s words to celebrate the many friendships present both within the LGSO and between the orchestra and community.
