HONORING Lori Zupan | 35 years of service

Few people have made more of an impact on a southeast Michigan arts organization than Lori Zupan. Joining the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra in 1988, she’s made an incredible, indelible impact on the work, mission, and music of the A²SO. For 35 years, Lori’s played a critical role in presenting our signature world-class performances over countless seasons, managing nearly every department in existence during that time.

We hope you’ll join with us in celebrating a very special person who’s done so much for so many. Read on for more info on how you can join in the chorus of tributes!
