The mission of the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is "to provide excellent symphonic music for the pleasure of the public in the tri-state region, educate people of all ages in the symphonic repertoire and tradition, and encourage student and professional musicians to develop and share their musical talents and skills."

The Coulee Region, including parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa, can be very proud of the many cultural organizations that call this area home. Foremost among those organizations is the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra, Inc. With roots dating back to 1898, the LSO has been serving the cultural needs of this area continuously since 1941. This 20011-12 season marks its 113th year.

The LSO enjoys broad support from the communities of which it is a part. Business, foundations and industry support the LSO through partnerships, sponsorships and in-kind contributions. Individuals provide generous voluntary support for classical music in the Coulee Region by:

  • Purchasing individual and season tickets, 
  • Making philanthropic contributions, 
  • Participating in fund raising events sponsored by the Symphony and its support group the Friends of the Symphony, 
  • Volunteering time and talents to projects, and
  • Sponsoring and Partnering concerts and educational events.
