Our Message is Our Music


Our three major ensembles – Freedom Marching Band, shhh…OUT! Jazz Ensemble, and Symphonic Band  reflect a musical legacy that began in 1979 with the original Chicago Gay Pride Band. Today, Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles -- more than 15 years strong and counting -- serves as the umbrella organization for our current ensembles that celebrate this heritage.
