FESTIVAL CONCERT DEFINITIONS: The Festival differentiates the types of performances through various headlines. They include the LSO Classical Series, LSO Pops Concert, Festival Stage, New Horizons, and Mini Concerts.
LSO Classical Series - The centerpiece of the Festival, five unique concerts are performed under the direction of guest conductors and artists.
LSO Pre-Concert Talk Series - Prior to each LSO Classical Series, ticket holders may sit in on impromptu lectures by LSO members, visiting composers, local music scholars or others who may be involved in the Festival music scene.
LSO Pops Concert - Typically performed before a capacity crowd, the LSO entertains guests with music of a more popular nature.
Festival Stage - Popular performers take to the main stage to kick-off and close out the Festival season.
New Horizons - Considered the cutting edge of entertainment, up-and-coming artists take advantage of this series to showcase their unique talents.
Mini Concerts - Named for its performances in smaller, more intimate settings, this series features chamber group performances. An after-concert social hour allows mini concert guests the opportunity to meet the artists.
LSO Ensembles - Various combinations of the LSO musicians performing together.
What is SummerFaire? - Volusia County is home to many outstanding art institutions that offer a heady mixture of both the popular and classic art forms. Although informally organized, "SummerFaire" gathers together their summer programs during the Festival to provide additional activities and options in the area.
