The Lakeside Symphony Orchestra (LSO) will present a special performance with Verb Ballets at 8:15 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4 in Hoover Auditorium. This concert is sponsored by the Iva M. Clark Memorial Endowment.

Established in 1963, the 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. This concert welcomes guest conductor John Gordon Ross and will feature the music of a wide variety of composers including Shostakovich, Minkus, Mendelssohn, Gottschalk and Nyman.

Ross has been the 2nd Trombonist for the LSO since 1978 and is grateful to Lakeside as the place where he met his wife of 37 years, Sarah Rocco Ross, who has also performed with the LSO for more than 40 years.

He recently retired from serving as conductor of the Western Piedmont Symphony in Hickory, N.C. since 1991. Ross is a faculty member at Lenoir-Rhyne University where he teaches music history and instrumental conducting.

Verb Ballets, a contemporary ballet company, presents dynamic shows through bold artistry, unique styles and technical excellence. Under the direction of Dr. Margaret Carlson, Producing Artistic Director, and Richard Dickinson, Associate Director, the company will present a show that ignites passion with the energy, beauty and athleticism of dance.

Verb Ballets cultivates dance appreciation and nurtures wellness through movement in community dance classes, school residencies, senior outreach, library programs, master classes and college course partnerships.

The company has been named one of the "Five Great Tiny Troupes in America" by Dance Magazine and was one of the 25 dance companies in American to watch.

In 2017, Verb Ballets celebrated its 30th anniversary. As one of the oldest dance organizations in Cleveland, they're proud to produce high caliber work and continue to connect with communities across a four country reach.
