About Us

The Lake Forest Civic Orchestra (known previously as the North Suburban Symphony) is proud of its 26-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. The 2016-2017 concert season marks the second year with Robert Nordling as music director. The LFCO performs four regular concerts each season. All concerts in 2016-2017 are held in Lake Forest at Gorton Center’s John & Nancy Hughes Theater.

On Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 4:00pm the orchestra will present its final concert of the season: “Made in the U.S.A.,” a concert that includes Printemps for Spring (Lake Forest’s Jim Stephenson); Black Cascades (Zlatkin); Darker America (1925) (Still); and Appalachian Spring (Copland). The concert will also feature MYA-Walgreens Competition Winner Robert Sanders, violinist, who will be performing the Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso (Saint-Saens).

Tickets will be available online or at the door, and cost $20 adult/$10 seniors and students. We invite you to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance to avoid any disruptions to the performance.
