A little bit of history…

Waukegan Symphony Orchestra was born on April 24, 1974 when favorite comedic son Jack Benny returned to his home town of Waukegan to star in the WSO’s initial performance. It was a magical night, held at Waukegan High School’s auditorium. Like the Music Center of Lake County, the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra has made itself synonymous with the broad range of culture that is the hallmark of our city. Through its history, the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra has engaged its audiences in both traditional and challenging works. Musical direction now rests in the capable hands of Maestro Stephen Blackwelder who has brought new energy and focus to the organization.

Waukegan Concert Chorus was established as a community chorus in 1976 to sing with the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Verdi’s Requiem. The members of the community recognized the great benefit of retaining such a cultural asset in the community and the Chorus continued as an independent sister organization to the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra. Today, Music Director Randy Casey ’s baton leads this community chorus.
