Operations Manager



Operations Manager

Carol retired to the Long Prairie area after a 30-year career in banking management. After retiring she became active in the community performing with the Prairie Players, 4 choirs, a fellowship coordinator at St. Joseph's in Grey Eagle, Vice President of the Grey Eagle library board, Treasurer of Long Lake Improvement Association, and Swanville Legion Auxiliary.

Carol has been on the LPCO board for 5 years. Her favorite job with the orchestra is planning and decorating for the events and meeting all of our patrons.

Given her love of music, Carol finds her time with the Long Prairie Chamber Orchestra very gratifying.



Publicity and Volunteer Coordinator, Grant Reviewer

Facebook Administrator;
Treasurer and Website Administrator

Luan has been on the LPCO board for over a decade.  Although not an active musician, she is an enthusiastic supporter of the arts.  In her role as the director of the Long Prairie Area Chamber of Commerce, she is already well-versed in promoting and coordinating local area events, updating Facebook pages and writing grants. So working with the orchestra as the grant reviewer, publicity and volunteer coordinator, and Facebook administrator is a perfect fit for Luan.

Jürgen has always been a musician. Since his favorite instrument - the accordion - is not usually featured in a chamber orchestra, he supports the LPCO with his technical skills and love for numbers. 


During the day he is a land surveyor.  At night he keeps track of the LPCO finances.
