Seven individuals will soon be joining the board of directors for the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra. The new board members, each of whom will serve a three-year term, will officially begin their duties Aug. 1.

“I am excited and honored to have these board members join the LCSO Board of Directors,” Tim King, LCSO’s executive director, said. “There is a wide variety of experience and knowledge here, and I am especially gratified to know that several of them have musical backgrounds as well.”

New members include Bradley Adamsky, attorney with the law firm of Drayton, Biege, Sirugo & Elliott, LLP; Andrea Back, quality director for La Porte Hospital; Steven Kring, president, Horizon Bank, Northwest Indiana Region; Dionne Lovstad-Jones, regional ministry facilitator for Lutheran Hour Ministries; Fran Milo, co-owner of Milo Enterprises; Alyssa Speichert, attorney with the law firm of  Newby, Lewis, Kaminski & Jones, LLP; and Kathryn Tackett, attorney and NERC compliance specialist with NIPSCO.

“We’re very happy to welcome these community members to the Board. Each one of them brings insight and individual experience that will be invaluable to the LCSO,” said Kathryn Bernel, incoming LCSO board chair. “We have an exciting year ahead of us: not only will we continue the tradition of giving the community remarkable, live concerts, but we’re growing our partnership with the area’s local student musicians in new and exciting ways.”

The LCSO will be entering its 48th season in September with the presentation of the 15th Annual Hoosier Star event. The season will also include three subscription concerts, educational presentations, and the 26th annual Holiday at the Pops concert. In addition, the search for a Music Director will be entering its final season.
