The Lakeside Symphony Orchestra is a dynamic group of over one hundred and fifty students who practice and perform the standard orchestra literature from the baroque through the 20th century. Movie soundtracks and Broadway showtunes add spice and variety to our program. Conductor Volz keeps his skills honed by including occasional original compositions as well as performing some of the percussion duties. Our performances are noted for their rhythmic vitality, rich texture of sound, and professional presentation. The Symphony also competes and performs in and at a variety of local and out-of-state venues to improve their repertoire. Students from Lakeside are regular and vital members of top local honor orchestras including The Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, The Emory Youth Orchestra, Dekalb Youth Symphony, Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra and Buckhead Youth Orchestra.
