LAKE FOREST – The Lake Forest Civic Orchestra will perform beloved works from the opera at its upcoming concert on November 20, with a special invitation to military veterans during this month when we celebrate their service.
Please join us on Sunday, November 20 at 4 pm at the John & Nancy Hughes Theater of the Gorton Community Center, located at 400 E. Illinois Road in Lake Forest. For more information, and to buy tickets, please visit our website at www.lakeforestcivicorchestra.org.
For the past year, the LFCO has participated in VetTix.org, an organization that pairs current and former members of the military services with donated tickets.
The LFCO was particularly grateful to receive this note from a veteran, following its May 2016 concert: “This is the second Lake Forest Civic Orchestra event that my family and I have had the opportunity to attend and we are grateful for this an all of the experiences made possible by VetTix. Your organization not only allows us to grow culturally by making possible something that is usually out of the financial realm of an E-6 with a family of 5, but it also allows us to spend much needed time together. Once again, thank you.
The LFCO, your community orchestra, is proud to share beautiful music with our surrounding communities, and most grateful to those who serve.
Featured vocal soloists include soprano Bridget Skaggs and tenor Zackary Vanderburg.
