Music. Medicine. Service.

These three core values inform all aspects of the Longwood Symphony Orchestra. Since the early 80s, the orchestra has presented public concerts at New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall, and since 1991, each concert has raised money for a different Community Partner, benefiting underserved populations throughout the Greater Boston region.

Healing Art of Music // For over 30 years, the Longwood Symphony Orchestra has presented public concerts at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall. Each concert helps raise funds and awareness for Boston-based nonprofit organizations that aid the medically underserved.
