We are very pleased to invite you to take part in our 2nd Annual À La Carte. Over the next few months, you will have the chance to be a part of several parties being planned for the benefit of the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra.
À La Carte provides a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends, enjoy entertainment and experience great cuisine. These unique events will also give you the chance to visit some of the most beautiful properties in and around La Porte County.
We would like to thank the Association of The Louisville Orchestra which has been so incredibly generous to allow us to replicate their highly successful fund-raiser that is now in its 27th year.
We would like to extend a special thank you to our wonderful supporters for your commitment to the LCSO. We look forward to new and exciting opportunities to help promote our symphony.

Water; heather; seaweed; barley; peat; malting. Yes, we’re talking whiskey—that Celtic word meaning spirit drinks made from cereal grains. If it is matured in oak casks in Scotland it can be called Scotch or Scottish Whiskey. And it can also be found during this evening of whiskey tasting!
Enjoy sample whiskeys from the Lowlands, Highlands, Speyside, and the Islands as we allow time for explanation of each spirit and distillery, open discussion, tasting notes, and food pairings.
Your hosts for the evening are happy to provide a ride home for guests living in La Porte County. If traveling from further afield—please consider arranging for your transportation home. While this will certainly not be a drinking contest we do encourage guests to plan appropriately.
