The Longwood Symphony Orchestra is a volunteer non-profit orchestra based in Boston, Massachusetts, composed of medical professionals. Their concerts act as fundraisers for health-related non-profit organizations. It was founded in 1982 by members of the Harvard Medical School. They perform four concerts a year in Jordan Hall at the New England Conservatory, plus a summer outdoors concert at the Hatch Shell. The current music director and conductor is Ronald Feldman. The orchestra has been profiled in the Wall Street Journal,[1] the Boston Globe,[2] and the Boston Herald.[3] In June 2007, the Longwood Symphony Orchestra accepted the 2007 MetLife Award for Excellence in Community Engagement from the American Symphony Orchestra League.
