Lakeside Symphony Orchestra

The Lakeside Symphony Orchestra (LSO), established in 1963, is one of Lakeside’s most cherished traditions. Under the direction of conductor and musical director Daniel Meyer, this organization brings classical music to guests of all ages presenting audiences with six classical music performances in addition to a special Family Concert to start the season. Also performing will be guest musicians, including violinist Stella Chen, cellist Thomas Mesa and pianist Soyeon Kate Lee. Review our 2022 Summer Concert Series below.

The Ohio Arts Council is funded in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature.
