Remembering Manly Lucas (1939-2021)

It is with deep appreciation for his life among us that LCCO regrets the recent passing of cellist Manly Lucas. He played with us from the beginning of our very first season when we made our debut concert on February 14, 1988 under the direction of Harlan Duenow.

He not only served as the heart of the cello section, he also shared his arranging and orchestrating skills as needs arose. Manly remained active through December 2019, the last concert of LCCO’s shortened 32nd season. We are grateful for his faithful service.


The following list of Manly Lucas memorial donations to LCCO will be kept up to date. The people will be included as LCCO members in the first program of our 33rd season, whenever that turns out to be.
