Partnership with Foundation for the Lucernce Symphony Orchestra

Sika supports the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra (LSO) and is proud of being a partner of the Foundation for the LSO.

The Lucerne Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is the orchestra-in-residence of the KKL Luzern, a culture and convention centre designed by architect Jean Nouvel and opened in 1998. As Switzerland’s oldest symphony orchestra, the LSO has gained an international standing that extends far beyond its home territory. Strongly anchored in Lucerne, a city with a worldwide reputation for music, the LSO offers a number of annual concert cycles and acts as the orchestra-in-residence of the Lucerne Theatre.

Distinguished conductors have, over the years, tapped the richness of this medium-sized, cosmopolitan orchestra. James Gaffigan, its Chief Conductor, was appointed in time for the LSO's 2011/12 season, while leading conductors of the day such as Michael Gielen, Neeme Järvi, Sir Neville Marriner, Leonard Slatkin, Matthias Bamert, Andrey Boreyko, Kristjan Järvi, Peter Eötvös, Andris Nelsons, Vasily Petrenko and Tugan Sokhiev are regularly invited to take charge of specific concert cycles.
