Lakeshore Symphonic Band is a regional group based in the north shore Milwaukee, Wisconsin area, performing symphonic wind ensemble and traditional concert band music. The band provides a musical outlet that enables its members to maintain and further develop their musical skills and give back to the community a high quality musical experience.
Since 1976, LSB has performed several concerts each year, of mostly classic symphonic band and wind ensemble music. Concerts have also included Big Band era tunes, popular show and children's music, and an annual Christmas program at Holy Hill. In January 2005, the band was honored to perform at the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Chapter of the National Band Association.
LSB draws approximately 60 volunteer musicians from Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Washington, and Milwaukee Counties. While occupations and musical experiences vary among its members, all have a serious interest in providing a high quality performance for their audience. LSB is a nonprofit group, and depends solely on membership dues, donations and ticket sales for funding.
Lakeshore Symphonic Band is a member of the Association of Concert Bands.
