Under the direction of Music Director & Conductor Daniel Meyer, the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra (LSO) will open its 59th summer residency in Lakeside Chautauqua at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 26 in Hoover Auditorium.
The LSO, established in 1963, is a celebrated tradition at Lakeside and a key component of our arts programming. More than 80 musicians from across the country are members of the symphony, many of whom have devoted years of service to Lakeside.
This summer brings a series of LSO performances for all ages, seven to be exact, with extraordinarily talented guest artists and new opportunities for audiences to share the love of music and the symphony. There will also be an LSO Brass Quintet Family Concert on Thursday, Aug. 4 and four Pre-Concert Lectures on July 29, Aug. 2, 9 and 12.
The first LSO concert of the season on Tuesday, July 26 is geared toward families and based on the classic children’s storybook Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, which will be narrated by Allison Bell. Maria Hincapie, flute, is the evening’s featured soloist.
