Established in 1963, the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is one of Lakeside’s most cherished traditions. Bringing classical music to the Chautauqua community, the orchestra performs seven concerts during its month-long residency.

The LSO is made up of more than 90 musicians from across the country that have devoted many years of service to Lakeside.

This summer, each LSO concert will feature a guest conductor. “Musical Postcards” will be presented by guest conductor Matthew Kraemer.

Following an international search, Kraemer was appointed Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra in 2015. He also serves as Music Director of the Butler County Symphony and recently completed his fifth and final season as Music Director of the Erie Chamber Orchestra.

He was Associate Conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra from 2009-2014. The orchestra’s award-winning education concerts grew exponentially under his leadership, expanding to reach more than 40,000 students.

Recipient of the distinguished Herbert von Karajan Conducting Fellowship and the Bruno Walter Career Development Grant, Kraemer served a residency with the Vienna Philharmonic at the 2006 Salzburg Music Festival.

Equally at home in the opera pit, his credits include fully-staged productions of The Magic Flute, The Barber of Seville, Madame Butterfly and La Traviata, to name a few. As a frequent collaborator with Broadway superstar Idina Menzel, he has served as conductor for many of her symphony engagements.

Kraemer studied conducting in Vienna, Austria with Salvador Mas Conde. His conducting teachers include David Zinman, Robert Spano and Jorma Panula.

The LSO’s third performance of the summer will feature violinist Jinjoo Cho. A native of Seoul, South Korea, Cho moved to Cleveland at the age of 14 to study at the Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM).

She is a gold medalist of the 2014 Ninth Quadrennial International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, the first prize and orchestra award-winner of the first Buenos Aires International Violin Competition in 2010, and first grand prize at the Alice Schoenfeld International String Competition.

Cho completed her Bachelor of Music degree both at the Curtis Institute of Music and the CIM. She also received her Master of Music and Professional Studies from CIM.

Following the concert, there will be a reception in the Hoover Auditorium lobby for guests to meet Kraemer and Cho.

Kraemer will also lead a Symphony Pre-Concert Talk at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1 in Hoover Auditorium. Each talk gives the audience an opportunity to learn more about the evening’s concert music, composers and guest conductor.

The community can learn more about Kraemer at the Meet the Conductor Forum on at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 31 in Chautauqua Hall.
