Behind the Curtain: Lakeside Symphony Orchestra
With Lakeside Chautauqua’s 150th Anniversary just around the corner, we’re excited to introduce you to Lakeside Online – a new way to connect with friends year-round, explore the Chautauqua experience from the comfort of home and catch a sneak peek of what’s in store for the Sesquicentennial Celebration next summer.
From December through April, join us to discuss books written by next summer’s visiting authors and speakers and participate in virtual conversations with the Chautauqua Pillar Directors and an Advent Study.
Come behind the curtain with Daniel Meyer, Music Director & Conductor of the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra, to get a sneak peek of the symphony’s upcoming 60th season. Meyer will discuss the pieces and ensembles that inspire him to lead the artistic vision of the music that engages thousands of Lakesiders each summer.
For the inaugural year of Lakeside Online, programs will be free-of-charge. Donations are gratefully accepted to support these mission-driven programs.
