About This Season
Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles presents its 25th anniversary season “Silver Linings.”  Founded in 1997, the musicians of Lakeside Pride built a chosen family at a time when acceptance and rights for LGBTQ people looked very different than they do today.  Through rough times and good, we’ve found joy in unexpected silver linings.
