Founded in the fall of 1999, The Lakeside Singers is a unique group of outstanding professional singers, composers and arrangers, half of whom have the majority of their performing experience in classical choral music and half in non-classical styles. Individually, they have performed in TV and radio commercials, operas, early music ensembles, film scores, Broadway shows, jazz clubs, cruise ships, cabarets and classical and popular concerts across the country.
Few other groups give their audiences both a well-studied classical sound during the first half of the concerts and a totally different experience when the same group of singers move to microphones in front of a live band for the second half. What is consistent is The Lakeside Singers’ commitment to mutually respect their differing skills and learn from each other, while delivering the highest level of musical integrity no matter what the style.
The Lakeside Singers are headquartered in Evanston and operate under the leadership of Robert Bowker, noted singer, conductor, composer, arranger and producer. The devotion of The Lakeside Singers to their music is evident. Individuals must audition for acceptance to the group and must re-audition every two years. While the group is headquartered in Evanston, most of the group do not reside there but come to rehearse every week from as far away as Vernon Hills, Lake Zurich, Elmhurst, Oak Park and the south side of Chicago.
The Lakeside Singers' joy and appreciation of the broad range of musical styles they present is contagious - offering their audiences the unique opportunity to indulge their individual musical tastes and to acquire an appreciation of the beauty and value of great music of any style.
