Long Grove, IL – Buffalo Creek Brewing (BCB) and the Lake County Symphony Orchestra (LCSO) are proud to announce ongoing concerts in historic downtown Long Grove. On the heels of the incredible success of July 3rd, “American Salute,” where the spacious BCB beer garden was packed full, LCSO will open its regular season September 17th at 7 p.m. with “Broadway & Hollywood Blockbusters.” Featuring the music of West Side Story, South Pacific, Wicked, Porgy and Bess, The Sound of Music, and John Williams’ premiere orchestral suite from Star Wars, music will fill the evening sky for the whole family. Dynamic musical theater singers Chris and Donna Engelhardt, soloists from July 3rd, will be featured in the Broadway medleys. Guests can enjoy food from Smokin’ T’s, freshly hard-crafted BCB beer, and Lake County’s only professional orchestra. More outdoor LCSO concerts at BCB will be announced soon.
