Lakeview Orchestra is home to dozens of volunteer musicians from diverse backgrounds and professions. We're an orchestra of lawyers, waiters, accountants, salespeople, stay-at-home parents, teachers, doctors, architects, scientists, baristas, programmers, entrepreneurs, aspiring professional musicians and many more! We have at least one thing in common: A commitment to musical excellence and performing to the best of our ability.
