Discount to Lakeside Pride Band Concert

"Many of you may not be aware that Uptown is home to one of the largest volunteer symphonic bands in Chicago.  Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band is based at the Preston Bradley Center, known to many of us as the People's Church.  Lakeside Pride's next concert is being held this Saturday, November 19th at Preston Bradley at 941 W. Lawrence.  Alderman James Cappleman will be the emcee for the concert, and many members of the band live in Uptown.

Preston Bradley Center, 941 W. Lawrence, Chicago

Tickets $15 advance; $20 day of show; $12 seniors; $12 student rush (door) via www.lakesidepride.org

The Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band presents a concert will make audiences' feet want to tap, stomp and pirouette. "Suite of Old American Dances", written by Broadway orchestrator and arranger Robert Russell Bennett, is the centerpiece of this concert, and features familiar dance tunes such as "Cake Walk," "Schottische," "Western One-Step," "Wallflower Waltz," and "Rag."  Then travel the rest of the world as the band performs a selection from Stravinsky's passionate "Firebird", Grainger's interpretation of "Molly on the Shore," an Irish reel, and the energetic Russian "Sailor's Dance."  Ticketholders are invited to a special reception sponsored by Barefoot Wine & Bubbly following the concert.

We would be willing to offer readers of Uptown Update a $5 off discount on each ticket purchased via www.lakesidepride.org with the code “UPTOWN11”.   The code would expire on 11/18 and cannot be combined with any other offers."
