Join Us at our Annual Benefit

See some of Chicago’s top singers up close and personal!

The Lakeside Singers invite you to share an evening of food, drink, music and fun with Chicago’s finest singers and friends at our annual fall benefit!

  • Friday evening • October 13, 2017 • 7:00 pm
  • Highland Park Country Club
  • 1201 Park Avenue West, Highland Park, Illinois 60035
  • Free parking is readily available

This will be your only opportunity to hear an up close performance by The Lakeside Singers featuring soloists and small ensembles from the group in their signature eclectic repertoire. Ever wonder what they’re really like in person? You can meet and chat with all of them!

And you’ll hear a select group of high school singers from the fabulous Senn High School chorus, part of this year’s Kids On Track Outreach program. Great kids! And great singers!

From the Executive Director

Our Benefit each year is a combination of putting on a show, thanking our wonderful supporters and asking them to continue helping us. To say it is critical to what we do is certainly an understatement. Our nineteenth season of concerts and our Kids on Track program now reaching the 20th CPS high school choral program are dependent on the funds we raise. Your support of our organization is the concrete expression of your appreciation not only of the arts, but also of arts education. We can’t thank you enough.

Also, we are looking for your help as we seek to expand our board of directors and our pool of volunteers to help at the Benefit and at our concerts. If you feel passionate about what we do and would like to help, please contact email me at

From the Artistic Director

We have begun rehearsals for the holiday concert. After the planning stage, hearing it come alive with the singers is always exciting for me. Here you will find a list of the repertoire for the concert. I’m reminded of the old truism that, “Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.” The experience of live performance transcends anything that can be easily conveyed in words or written down in a list. That said, It is my plan to update this site regularly to speak about some of these pieces in more detail than we have time for in performance. Also, I invite anyone who reads this to suggest repertoire for us in the future. See you soon!
