Under the direction of American Prize-winning conductor David Anderson, the Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra (LGSO) continues to reach new levels of accomplishment for a community orchestra. In the 2018–19 season, the orchestra completed its nine-year “Beethoven Project” with a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, collaborating with 140 singers from the combined college choirs of UW-Whitewater, the University of Northern Iowa, and Moody Bible Institute. In its Music by the Lake performance at Aurora University’s George Williams campus, LGSO became the first community orchestra to perform Disney’s Fantasia with real-time animation. Later that fall, they performed Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.
The LGSO seeks a part-time Executive Director to continue the LGSO’s growth and organize the efforts of the orchestra’s volunteer pool. The ED will report to the LGSO Board of Directors through its Chairman. The ED will coordinate with LGSO volunteers and board members to accomplish the LGSO’s operational plan and further its mission.
Lake Geneva is a resort community located in Southern Wisconsin, 90 minutes from Chicago.
