Spring Concert 2018

May 17, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Lake Zurich MSN Orchestra’s final concert of the 2017-18 school year will be held on May 17, 2018 at 7:00 PM at LZMSN.

The orchestras have been studying music from different time periods ranging from simple dance music from the Renaissance Era (1500s) up to the height of Western Classical music of the Post-Romantic Era (early 20th Century).

In addition to performing music from our rich history, the students have been working with a real live composer, Dr. Ryan Jerving (aka The Viper) who, I’m sure, may insert a few musical jokes here in there in his compositions. Read The Viper’s most recent message to the students at

It’s a bittersweet concert as the 8th graders show off all that they have learned in their 3-year experience in MS Orchestra as they bid us adieu in their final concert.

We hope you join us for the concert on May 17 at 7 PM! See you there!
