The concert is sponsored by the City of Slidell, Slidell Commission on the Arts, Slidell Cultural Season sponsors, and the Louisiana Division of the Arts as administered by the St. Tammany Parish Commission on Cultural Affairs.
The orchestra was established in 1987. Conducting the orchestra since 2006 is Slidell native Susan Messina, who holds a master’s degree in music and has over 30 years of experience as a music educator and band director.
