Drayton Family Children's Education Concert

Thanks to the following sponsors

The 34th Annual Drayton Family Education Concerts will take place at the Civic Auditorium on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. Concert times will be 9:30 AM, 11:10 AM and 12:45 PM.  LCSO Music Director Dr. Carolyn Watson will conduct.  These concerts are intended to provide music education to the students in La Porte County, Northwest Indiana and Southwest Michigan.

We are fortunate to have Megan Sullivan, Band Director of Kesling Intermediate School, to again serve as the creator of our Education Guides again this year. Registration information will be sent to the schools prior to the concerts. 

The LCSO thanks the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte, Michigan City Community Enrichment Corporation, The Barker Welfare Foundation, Unity Foundation of La Porte County, /teachers Credit Union Foundation, David and Dr. Linda Sirugo and Kappa Kappa Kappa of Westville for their support of these concerts.   Because of their sponsorship, the LCSO is able to charge only $1.00 per student to attend.

We would also like to thank Michael Drayton and the staff of Drayton, Biege, Sirugo & Elliott, LLP, for their incredible service of contacting schools, collating education guides, taking reservations and handling all the seating for our annual Children’s Concerts.  For 34 years, these wonderful people have been giving of their time and talent to enable the success of these concerts!

The excellence of LCSO’s educational outreach is significant for the area and these concerts have been recognized as one of the most successful concerts in the nation by the American String Teachers Association and the National School Orchestra Association.
