The La Porte County Symphony Orchestra continues its 48th season March 14 with a celebration of Beethoven’s belated 250th birthday. Under the direction of the LCSO’s 6th and final music director candidate, Wilbur Lin, the Orchestra will perform:

— Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”
— Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7

The concert will be performed at La Porte’s Civic Auditorium, 1001 Ridge St., beginning at 3 p.m. A limited number of tickets for purchase will be available to the public. Tickets — $20 for adults and $18 for senior citizens — are available at www.lcso.net, by visiting Roxy Music or the Civic Auditorium, or at the door. Doors open at 2 p.m. Masks will be required for attendance.

Since 2019, Wilbur Lin has served as assistant conductor for the Cincinnati Symphony. He is a graduate of Riccardo Muti’s Italian Opera Academy and is a Doctor of Music graduate from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. He is a two-time recipient of the Mortimer Furber Prize for Conducting at the Royal Northern College of Music and is founder of the Chamber Philharmonic Taipei, which began as a student orchestra and is now a professional chamber orchestra.

The LCSO is also excited to welcome Carey Scheck, a La Porte resident who will be the piano soloist on Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.” Scheck is a graduate of Valparaiso University and Western Illinois University with degrees in Piano Performance, and is currently a music teacher in the La Porte Community School Corporation. Her appearance is sponsored by Alan and Kathleen Lang, Leigh and Marcia Morris, and Bert and Adi Veenendaal.
