Please join us for our upcoming Spring Pops Concert. With a fun and energetic program that features favorites highlighting locations from across the globe, this performance will truly take you “Around the World in 80 Minutes”.

Inspiring the greater Lowell community with quality musical performances since 1987, the Lowell Philharmonic Orchestra continues to provide audiences with lively classical and pops music each season. We offer casual, lighthearted concerts, making audiences of all ages comfortable and engaged.

Comprised of passionate semi-professional and amateur musicians, the LPO not only offers an outlet for local talent, but fosters future generations of musicians and music lovers by actively encouraging area youth to become involved with local music. The LPO enriches youth through the appreciation of concerts, skill development, and showcasing local young musicians’ excellence.

Our 2019 Spring Pops Concert will feature the winner of this year’s Jeanne Selander Memorial Concerto Competition: Zoey Long. In this competition, young musicians through the age of 18 who live or go to school within 75 miles of Lowell audition for the opportunity to perform as a soloist with the orchestra. Zoey Long is a fourteen year old violist from Winchester, MA. She began her music studies on the violin, at age five. At the age of seven, Zoey began taking lessons with her current teacher, Dr. Vera Rubin. Less than three years ago, Zoey began learning the viola, while continuing learning the violin and piano. She was the winner of the 2018 MMTA Bay State Competition, and has also won numerous other top prizes on the violin. In the summer of 2017, Zoey attended the Cremona International Music Academy in Italy, and was a finalist in the Cremona International Competition. Outside of her private studies, Zoey has been enrolled in New England Conservatory’s preparatory orchestras since 2013, and is currently in their top ensemble, the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra. Zoey will be performing the 1st movement of Carl Stamitz’s Viola Concerto with the LPO.
