Littleton Symphony Orchestra
About the Littleton Symphony
The Littleton Symphony Orchestra (LSO) began as a twelve-member string ensemble in the fall of 1984 under the direction of Glenn McCune. The next year, the group added wind, brass, and string players, performing as the Littleton Chamber Orchestra with William Skoog conducting. In 1990, the group grew to a full-size symphony under the direction of its present conductor, Jurgen de Lemos, and changed its name to the Littleton Symphony Orchestra. His expertise and leadership have been largely responsible for the LSO's reputation as one of Colorado's most respected and versatile community orchestras. The LSO is dedicated to the growth and quality of its musicians and to the cultural life of the south suburban area. It has participated in concerts during the Western Welcome Week, at the Riverfront Festival, Hudson Gardens, Elitch Gardens, Littleton Museum, Roxborough Park, Littleton Town Hall and at many community churches.
Performances that elevate the human spirit.

Laura Anderson is a native of Colorado. She was born and raised in Longmont where she began studying violin at the age of three. While in Longmont, she performed with the Longmont Symphony Orchestra both as a soloist and a member. Laura received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music. During her education at the University of Denver, Laura studied violin with James Maurer and Linda Wang as well as participating in master classes for Midori, Peter Oundjian, Alexander and Albert Markov and James Ehnes. While studying at DU, she earned many awards including placing in both the university’s solo and chamber ensembles competitions on multiple occasions, as well as being honored with the best junior solo recital and being named the most outstanding undergraduate in performance. Her outstanding scholastic and musical achievement at DU was also recognized in her graduation with summa cum laude honors and induction into the Pi Kappa Lambda honor society. She was soloist with the Lamont Symphony in 2007 performing Saint-Saens’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, which was reviewed in YourHub.com by Robin McNeil:
"The Saint-Saens was very well done. It was light and airy and very mellifluous. He was very sure of his violin soloist, Laura Anderson, who I might add, was superb. This young lady is truly extraordinary - she was always on pitch, and she had the kind of technique that made everything so easy…These two individuals, Ribeiro and Anderson, just made gorgeous music. "
In addition to playing with the Littleton Symphony, Laura also performs throughout the community as a soloist and with her string quartet, teaches Suzuki violin lessons, and also plays the harp.
