About this Season

Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles embarks on a new chapter of self-discovery and connection with our surroundings with our 27th season – “It’s Our Nature.”

By surrounding ourselves with our chosen family, shaping our environment to create a brave and safe space, and finding common ground with all people, we will see that we’re not all that different. It’s in our DNA to care for others and form a community, for we are stronger together than we are apart. Together, we care for each other and our planet to build a resilient future.
