We are thrilled to report that the matching grant of $10,000. from a most generous anonymous sponsor was indeed matched before the end of the year. In the midst of the barrage of requests from “Giving Tuesday” with a multitude of good causes, you all remembered The Lakeside Singers and we are so grateful. We will try very hard to live up to your confidence in us.

Looking Forward

We begin rehearsing for our Spring Concert series on January 20th and promise you an exciting and musically gratifying concert of “Wine, Women, Men and Song: What Could Go Wrong?” It’s clear that throughout history, composers have widely varied opinions on the complexities of love but are quite consistent when it comes to alcohol. Hmmm?

We present an amazing mix on the topic: Purcell, Strauss and two funny world premieres in the first half, along with music made famous by Stevie Wonder, Pentatonix, and Beyoncé in the second. We guarantee some fabulous music in an informal concert setting. Come join us in the fun.

With us during two of our Spring performances will be the students from Solorio Academy High School and Northside College Prep. After several coaching sessions with members of the group and a recording session in Chicago, they will be ready to perform a piece on their own at one of our concerts and then join us on stage for the finale. We hope you can come! Mark your calendars now for the Spring concerts:

  • Wine, Women, Men and Song: What Could Go Wrong? 
  • Saturday, April 18 • 7:30 •  Grace United Methodist Church, 300 E Gartner Rd, Naperville 
  • Friday, April 24 • 7:30 • Nichols Hall, 1490 Chicago Av, Evanston 
  • Saturday, April 25 • 8:00 • St. James Cathedral, 65 E. Huron St, Chicago 

Videos of our 20th Anniversary Premieres

The Lakeside Singers had the honor of commissioning four new works to celebrate our 20th Anniversary Season. Here are in-concert recordings of our performances, in case you missed them. We couldn’t be more proud to be the first to sing these beautiful works of art. We hope you enjoy listening to them!
