Performances at 11am and 1pm
Gorton Community Center and the Lake Forest Civic Orchestra are proud to team up for this family holiday concert of Christmas Carols, old and new. A chamber orchestra, brass group, and string orchestra have been formed from the roster of the Lake Forest Civic Orchestra, Lake Forest’s own community orchestra. Enjoy classic Christmas favorites like “Jingle Bells,” “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” and “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” with new carols from Brian Balmage’s “Sweet Petite Winter Suite.” Sharing music with family and friends will start your holiday season with joyous sleigh bells and leave you with a warm toasty feeling that lasts long after the last note has been played.
Tickets for both performances may be purchased online through Gorton’s Holly Jolly event page.
This year the Lake Forest Civic Orchestra celebrates its 32nd year as Lake Forest’s orchestra. It is a true community orchestra bringing professional and accomplished amateur musicians together from the area to perform concerts at its home, Gorton Community Center. Lake Forest Civic Orchestra is an orchestra that has made it possible for people of all ages to use their musical talents and training throughout their lives.
