Let the Music Play! Join the Band.

If you have longed to play with a band and believe you don’t have the musical wherewithal, here’s an answer to that wish: the Lake Effect Clarinet Quartet (LECQ).  No, you don’t have to play a challenging instrument like the clarinet, but you can join with a kazoo!

The LECQ gave a delightful family concert at Sulzer Library on Saturday, December 17th, performing several selections from J.S. Bach’s “The Christmas Oratorio” and then descending to the great classic, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”  Hearing the bass clarinet’s “voice” for Mr. Grinch was delightful.

To conclude the program, the audience tuned their kazoos, and we did a rousing performance of Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus” from the “Messiah.”  You’ve got your 2017 calendar by now, I hope.  Turn to next December and make a note at the top to include this program in your holiday festivities.


Forward Chicago, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, envisions our neighborhoods as model communities for people of all ages, where residents can age in place while remaining active, engaged and influential.
