The new LLS Orchestra is led by maestro Professor Simona Grossi, a clasically trained and accomplished musician.

LMU Loyola Law School is launching the LLS Orchestra. It will be led by Professor Simona Grossi, an accomplished musician who serves as its music director and principal conductor.

The LLS Orchestra will bring together LLS students, alumni, faculty and staff. Members of the LLS community who play an instrument and wish to join should complete an online form. Professor Grossi may be reached at simona.grossi@lls.edu for questions and suggestions.

Selection of the Board of Directors, information about repertoire and schedule will be provided once the orchestra is formed. Before the reopening of the LLS campus, meetings (discussions on the music repertoire—open to players as well as non-players—analysis, and ensemble techniques) will be held on Zoom. After campus reopens, rehearsals will take place on campus.

"Plato described music as 'a moral law,' that 'gives a soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good and just and beautiful,'" said Professor Grossi. "In our global effort to achieve justice and equality, LLS is pleased to share the LLS Orchestra with you all. The orchestra will exist as a further reminder of the peace and beauty in the world that we, as lawyers, have a mission to protect: rights, equality, inclusion, justice."
