Sanford’s Hometown Orchestra
Bringing together volunteer musicians of different ages and musical backgrounds,
Lee County Community Orchestra performs free concerts of classical, semi-classical,
and popular music for Sanford, NC, and the surrounding area.
The orchestra has been silent since 2020 due to
COVID-19, but we plan to resume rehearsing with the full group in August in preparation for an October concert to kick off a 2021-22 season!
Are you a musician?
We're always looking for new musicians. Our members range in age from high school students to senior citizens, all focused on preparing and presenting free concerts for the community.

“The orchestra provides musicians young and old a place to play, make friends, and enjoy being a part of the full sound of an ensemble.
“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.”
-Joan & David Axner
“Supporting LCCO is a way to make a positive difference in Sanford and

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 or outdoors at Depot Park.
Music Made Locally
The orchestra not only gives residents a way enjoy the arts locally, it offers an opportunity for local musicians to perform. High school students contribute regularly and LCCO continues to welcome musicians of all ages.
Music Adds Value
More than just entertainment, the orchestra provides an important cultural base for our city. Sanford and Lee County are made a bit more special thanks to the talent and dedication of LCCO musicians.
