About This Season

Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles presents its 25th anniversary season “Silver Linings.” Founded in 1997, the musicians of Lakeside Pride built a chosen family at a time when acceptance and rights for LGBTQ people looked very different than they do today. Through rough times and good, we’ve found joy in unexpected silver linings.

About Lakeside Pride

Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles is Chicago’s premier family of performance groups for members and friends of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community. Home to four major ensembles – Jazz Orchestra, Marching Band, Pops Ensemble, and Symphonic Band – plus over a dozen chamber ensembles, the organization offers a diverse musical experience for both its audience and members.
