Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band to perform after hiatus
The Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band announced last week that their first performance in a year and anniversary concert would be on Sunday, Nov. 14.
In a press release, the band said the concert marks their “Silver Anniversary” 25th season. They’ve prepared pieces by blues composer W. C. Handy, contemporary composer Quincy Hilliard, Naoya Wada, and others from across the symphonic band spectrum.
Artistic Director Kyle Rhoades is returning after nearly two years and Assistant Conductor Jackie Fischer will have her debut with the concert.
