About Us

The Lake Forest Civic Orchestra (known previously as the North Suburban Symphony) is proud of its 25-year history of bringing professional and accomplished amateur musicians together to perform beloved classical works. Our current roster includes over 40 players from Lake County and beyond. Robert Nordling is the music director as of the 2015-16 season.

On May 15, 2016, the LFCO will feature the 2015 winner of the Walgreens National Concerto Competition, Lake Forest High School’s Kimberly Han, in a performance of Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in G Minor. The orchestra will also perform Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 and the Bach-Stokowski Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor in what promises to be an afternoon of awe-inspiring music.
