About Us

The Lake Forest Civic Orchestra, a 501(c)3 charitable institution, is proud of its 27-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 2017-2018 concert season marks the third year with Robert Nordling as music director. The LFCO performs four regular concerts each season. All concerts in 2017-2018 will be held in Lake Forest at Gorton Center’s John & Nancy Hughes Theater.

The 2017-2018 season continues with a concert on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 4:00pm entitled “Vive La France.” The performance will include Petite Symphonie for Winds (Gounod); Pavane pour une Infante Defunte (Ravel); Symphony in D Minor (Franck);  and Concerto for Cello #1 in A Minor (Saint-Saëns) featuring Ezra Escobar on cello
