The grant supports the development of the educational program «Horizonte/Horizons» in Switzerland with the goal to attract people who have rarely come into contact with classical music. LSO musicians visit school classes and talk about their lives as musicians, play for the children and young people, and make music with them. The same is organized in hospitals, care centres for paralyzed or physically disabled people, immigrant centres and centres for elderly people. In addition, invitations are given to visit the rehearsals at the KKL Luzern.
The Trägerverein Sinfonieorchester runs the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra (LSO), which is one of the oldest symphony orchestras in Europe, as it was founded in 1806.
