LCSO performs live and outdoors this Sunday

     Music lovers — take heart. This weekend will bring an opportunity to enjoy a live performance in a beautiful outdoor setting.
     The La Porte County Symphony Orchestra will perform in the sprawling meadows at Friendship Botanic Gardens, 2055 E. U.S. 12, Michigan City, from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. this Sunday, Aug. 23. This marks the first time that the orchestra has performed live since last December.
     Thirty-eight members of the LCSO, along with Interim Music Director and Conductor Chuck Steck, will join together and socially distance on the Celebration Pavilion at FBG to celebrate America. The two 2019 Hoosier Star winners, Rebecca Lane and Joe Stewart, will perform their winning songs for the audience.
     This is a joint fundraiser for both the LCSO and FBG.
     “The LCSO is very excited about this collaboration with Friendship Botanic Gardens,” said Tim King, LCSO executive director. “The recent restoration is nothing short of spectacular and the LCSO is very happy to be able to perform in such a beautiful place. We sincerely hope this is the beginning of a long and beautiful ‘friendship’ between our two organizations.”
     The gardens will provide not only a beautiful setting for the orchestra but will also give the audience plenty of space for social distancing, King said.
