Timeless Music - Creative People - Memorable Performances



The mission of the Long Prairie Chamber Orchestra is to provide engaging programming of orchestral music for the enrichment and enjoyment of its performers and audience.

Since 1974, Long Prairie Chamber Orchestra (LPCO) has been the talk of the town thanks to its wide range of quality orchestral music concerts.  We are the only orchestra of volunteer musicians in a small rural area which was formed by Orv and Reta Dahlen and Lowell and Janet Klukken. 

We believe in engaging with the community and embracing the talents of our local aspiring artists. Our goal is to offer audiences a chance to experience a variety of orchestral music performances.

As a nonprofit arts organization, we rely heavily on the support of our audiences and friends through free-will donations at our concerts and throughout the year. Our success as an organization is proven by the proud support of community members and local businesses.

    Our first time performing in the Long Prairie Concert in the Park summer series. Every Thursday night they offer a wonderful concert of a variety of music.


The LPCO has been asked to perform at the Long Prairie Concert in the Park series this summer.  From June to August every Thursday night they offer a wonderful concert of a variety of music.

The event is held in the yard of the Christie Historic Home across from the Veterans Memorial park. The board has chosen Thursday, July 22 at 7 pm for our concert. We plan to have a soloist or a small group performing for one or two pieces. The event will be similar to our virtual performances. 


“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.

Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks, and invents.”

Ludwig Van Beethoven
