Celebrating more than 50 years, the Lake Forest Symphony is the only fully professional orchestra in Lake County. The orchestra, named Illinois Orchestra of the Year in 2006 under the baton of Alan Heatherington, Illinois Conductor of the Year for 2012 and 2005, plus recipient of the Illinois Council of Orchestras’ Cultural Leadership Award for 2010, the Lake Forest Symphony presents five concert pairs in our Classical Series; prominent guest artists are regularly featured.
In 1991 the Symphony was chosen from twelve orchestras in the Midwest to be a featured guest orchestra at the American Symphony Orchestra League’s National Conference in Chicago. In October of the same year pianist Andre Watts performed two benefit concerts with the Symphony to celebrate its 35th anniversary. In 1995 and again in 2006, the Illinois Council of Orchestras named the Lake Forest Symphony the Illinois Orchestra of the Year.
The Lake Forest Symphony audience is comprised of loyal subscribers that are highly cultured and sophisticated with a love of live performances of classical music featuring top musicians, many who also play with the CSO and Lyric Opera orchestras.
