We marvel at Earth’s beauty before we descend In the Shadow of Your Mountain. Back at the foot of the mountain, we hear the thrilling melodies from Maslanka’s Mother Earth Fanfare, signaling that our journey isn’t quite over. Come to our concert and see what other wonders are ahead.

About this Season

Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles embarks on a new chapter of self-discovery and connection with our surroundings with the 2023-2024 concert series – “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.
