Lakeland Youth Symphony is excited to be marking 65 Years as Morris County’s Youth Orchestra. As one of the oldest youth orchestras in the country, we are encouraging all parents to celebrate this milestone at our 65th Anniversary Gala on April 22, 2023 (7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the The Growing Stage, 7 Ledgewood Ave, Netcong, NJ)

The Gala will celebrate music and the stage with string performances from our Prelude and Symphony Orchestra members and members of The Growing Stage Children’s Theater as just a few of the highlights of the evening. Testimonials from alumni, guest speakers, and a commemorative slideshow with pictures from past and present will complete the celebration. The evening will include a fundraising Silent Auction. 

Proceeds from the Gala will go directly back to Lakeland and your children! Here’s how you can help make this Gala a success:

Save the date: April 22, 2023 (7:00 – 9:00 p.m)  The evening will include a cocktail party with open bar and the opportunity to connect with our Lakeland family, the Growing Stage, and an array of community members. You will enjoy performances and learn about Lakeland past and present. Link to purchase tickets will be released soon.
