Awards to Seniors in High School

Each year the Livermore-Amador Symphony Association (LASA) presents awards to graduating high school seniors to recognize students who have made significant contributions to school and community musical activities.

Competition for Young Musicians

Since 1973, the LASA has conducted an annual Competition for Young Musicians. The competition takes place in October and the winners perform as soloists with the Symphony at its February concert and receive a monetary award.

Family Concerts

In coordination with the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, LASA presents a family-oriented concert at Livermore’s Bankhead Theater on an afternoon in early December.

Fiddle Club

The Fiddle Club program of LASA aimed at introducing elementary school children to playing the violin. Happily, the return of instrumental music instruction to elementary schools of the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District made Fiddle Club redundant.

School Concerts

Music Director Lara Webber has conducted LAS concerts at school assemblies in Livermore and Pleasanton elementary schools since 2015.

Youth Orchestra

Although cancelled for 2020, the Livermore-Amador Symphony Youth Orchestra (LASYO) has rehearsed and presented a public concert in all other summers since 2009.
