About this season

This season, Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles is honoring the legacy of the Stonewall Riots. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the riots in June 2019, our concert series will celebrate, in reverse chronological order, the landmark events that have shaped the LGBTQA community since Stonewall. Nearly a dozen ensembles will present 6 concerts this season, celebrating marriage equality, LGBTQA veterans, AIDS activists, New York City as the spark of the modern equality movement, and the influence of the Latinx community. The season will culminate with an inspiring and entertaining retrospective of the riots themselves, featuring performances of first-hand accounts from those who had the courage to stand up and fight that week in June 1969.
