Music exerts such a positive influence upon communities, providing an avenue for expression and a vital force that energizes the spirit of the community. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said: “Music is the universal language of mankind”. Nowhere is this language more beautifully spoken than in Lake Forest, Illinois, home to the Lake Forest Symphony Orchestra.
If you have ever wanted to learn a new, musical language, then you won’t want to miss the Lake Forest Symphony Orchestra’s Music Instrument Garden. The event will feature wind, brass, and string instruments that you can actually try out! If you have ever wondered which instrument might best suit you, or if you just enjoy learning more about how music is made, then this event will be a fun and educational musical adventure. The Lake Forest Symphony Orchestra’s Music Instrument Garden will be held on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at the Gorton Community Center.
If you would rather listen to others making music, then you may prefer Music in the Garden, an annual event hosted in an Italian Villa located at 955 N Lake Rd in Lake Forest. Built by the well-respected architect David Adler in 1916, the villa’s Tuscan architectural style creates the perfect backdrop for this musical fundraiser. Stroll through the gardens and listen to local musicians perform in this beautiful setting. Music in the Garden will also be held on June 24, 2018. Ticket information can be found here.
The Lake Forest Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1957 by William English and Robert Kalter. Beginning as a chamber orchestra, it grew over the years in size and scope. Today, it is an award-winning, professional symphony orchestra that performs at venues in and around Lake Forest.
