On Sunday, August 23 from 6:30-7:45 p.m., the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra will perform in it’s first concert of the year at the sprawling meadows at Friendship Botanic Gardens for an enchanting evening for families and adults.
The LSCO, now in its 48th season, is a pillar of the performing arts in the area serving audiences across seven counties. On August 23, 38 members of the Symphony, along with Chuck Steck, Interim Music Director and Conductor, will join together and socially distance on the Celebration Pavilion at FBG to celebrate America. This is a LSCO a la carte event and a joint fundraiser for FBG.
“The LCSO is very excited about this collaboration with Friendship Botanic Gardens,” said Tim King, LCSO executive director. “The recent restoration is nothing short of spectacular and the LCSO is very happy to be able to perform in such a beautiful place. We sincerely hope this is the beginning of a long and beautiful ‘friendship’ between our two organizations. In addition, our two 2019 Hoosier Star winners, Rebecca Lane and Joe Stewart, will be part of the concert singing their winning songs for our audience.”
Beverages will be available for purchase at this family friendly event! Advanced ticket purchase is recommended and is available Here
This is the first LSCO concert at Friendship Botanic Gardens. “We are extremely delighted to have the La Porte County Symphony perform in our new and beautiful Celebration Pavilion,” said John Leinweber, FBG Board President. “We are looking forward to potentially setting up a series of LSCO performances next year at the Gardens.”
Chairs will be available for use in the Celebration Meadow; however, guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets. No outside food or drink allowed in the venue. Both the LSCO and FBG ask that guests socially distance seating and wear face coverings when it is not possible to stay 6 feet away from others outside of their own family and friends.
