Sanford’s Hometown Orchestra
Lee County Community Orchestra is Sanford's hometown orchestra, bringing together volunteer musicians of different ages and musical backgrounds to perform FREE concerts of classical
and popular music for Sanford, North Carolina, and the surrounding area.
Our next concerts are Saturday, May 21 (7:30 pm) and Sunday, May 22 (3:00 pm) at the Mann Center.
"Darkness and Light" will feature the world premiere of a new work by composer Cody Criswell and Schubert's 4th Symphony.
LCCO is always looking for new musicians interested in playing with the orchestra.
Our members range in age from high school students to senior citizens. Learn more about playing with Sanford's hometown orchestra.
Why Is Community Orchestra Important?
Music For All
LCCO concerts are FREE and open to the public. Our concerts are a great place to hear wonderful music in a relaxed atmosphere.
Most of the orchestra's
performances are held at The Mann Center in Sanford.
Music Made Locally
The orchestra gives residents a way to enjoy the arts locally and creates an opportunity for local musicians to perform in an ensemble.
Musicians of all ages perform and contribute to the success of the orchestra.
Music Adds Value
The orchestra is more than just entertainment. It provides an important cultural amenity for our city.
Maintaining a performing orchestra speaks to the qualities and talents of the people in our community.

“What a great group you are and what a wonderful afternoon it was to sit back, relax and listen to the music that sounded more like a professional orchestra. How lucky we folks here in Sanford are to have you.”
