About the FLSSO The Friends of the Lancashire Student Symphony Orchestras was formed in 1975 and become a Registered Charity in 1981. We support both the Lancashire Youth Symphony Orchestra (LYSO) and the Lancashire Schools Symphony Orchestra (LSSO). We help at concerts and hold other events to raise money to assist parents with the ever increasing costs of musical education. The 'Friends' have merchandise, including CDs of past performances, for sale at most concerts. The Friends Council The 'Friends' is managed by a group of dedicated supporters comprising of parents, friends, members of the orchestras management team and officers from Lancashire Music Service - known as 'The Friends Council'. The Friends always welcome additional assistance from individuals to sit on "The Friends Council". If you feel you can spare the time, please contact our Chairman Angela Tranter (Tel. 01772 719264 / 0787 094 1415 or by email ). Where the money goes The Friends assist in the purchase of new instruments for the orchestra. There are scholarship/bursary awards intended to finance young musicians who wish to further there musical education by attending specialized courses, master classes etc. They are available to members of both Orchestras. The friends also help subside courses and tours. _____________________________________________________________ Contact Us If you have any suggestions, information or any other feedback then contact us.
