About Us

The Lake Forest Civic Orchestra, a 501(c)3 charitable institution, is proud of its 30-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 2018-2019 concert season marks our introduction of Christopher Ramaekers as Co-Music Director, teaming up with Maestro Robert Nordling, who begins his fourth season. The LFCO performs four regular concerts each season. All concerts in 2018-2019 will be held in Lake Forest at Gorton Center’s John & Nancy Hughes Theater.

We are very pleased, due to the generosity of our patrons, to be able to donate a number of tickets to veterans and active military personnel. Those tickets can be obtained at www.vettix.org or by sending a message to info@lakeforestcivicorchestra.org and requesting to be put on a will call list. We are proud to serve those who have served.
