The Circle was created in 2017 on the occasion of the orchestra’s 75th anniversary. It gathers classical music amateurs and passionates wishing to commit themselves to the artistic project of the OCL, with a view to support its exceptional heritage.

For classical music to be fully part of Lausanne’s life, the Circle gathers its patrons during meetings with artists, festive events and of course concerts at the Salle Métropole.
