We dedicate this page to All Our Concert Supporters

The Long Prairie Chamber Orchestra would like to extend our immense gratitude for the love and support of our community patrons and donors who come to our concerts and engage in our event activities throughout the year. We especially appreciate our volunteers whose commitment and dedication help us create joyful celebrations of music and time well spent together.  You are the heart and soul of our existence!

As we look ahead, we anticipate happier days with hope, inspiration and possibility.  It's a great time to reflect and set new goals and intentions as well as being thankful for the time we have with our loved ones. 


Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who made our New Years Eve Event a success! We are always looking for more volunteers.

Thank you to all our orchestra members who contributed to the silent auction. We have wonderfully talented people in the orchestra who produce handmade items and they are our top sellers!

The Silent Auction is a vital component to our fundraising activities that helps support our goal to be a continuing source of diverse orchestral and classical music to our community.
