Major Name Talent

Over the years, The City Lights Orchestra has developed a reputation for delivering a very high quality presentation. As word of that reputation spread, and the orchestra developed relationships with various meeting professionals, agents and producers on a national level, The City Lights Orchestra became a known and trusted choice for backing major name talent throughout the music industry.
