Lakewood Project 20th Reunion Concert

On May 28th, twenty years of Lakewood High School alumni will return to the Lakewood Civic Auditorium to perform in The Lakewood Project 20th Reunion Concert. With a theme of “Modern Rock,” the first act of the concert will be performed by the group’s current high school members. Alumni will join current students on stage in the second half of the concert, performing favorite songs chosen by alumni including “Carry On My Wayward Son,” “Don’t Stop Believin,” and “Beat It.” Previous members of The Lakewood Project will be traveling from across the country to perform together in a celebration of music, community, and Lakewood history.

The Lakewood Project Rock Orchestra was formed in 2003 as an innovative, cutting-edge approach to music education. The group features a rhythm section complete with drums, keyboard, electric guitar, and electric bass. The string section features two electric string quartets and two acoustic string quartets with double basses and harp. The group has performed at venues across the country. The Lakewood Project regularly performs three concerts a year, including at Lakewood Park on July 4th.

For twenty years, The Lakewood Project has inspired a lifelong love of music-making in its members. An impressive number of Lakewood Project alumni have established successful careers as musicians and music educators, with many others making a secondary income through music. As part of the reunion weekend, current members of The Lakewood Project will have the opportunity to attend a networking dinner, forming connections and gaining career advice with alumni working in many different fields.

The Lakewood Project 20th reunion will be an event that you do not want to miss. Come celebrate the strong and vibrant history of music in Lakewood with twenty years of Lakewood Project alumni.

Those interested in attending the concert may purchase tickets at the door ($15 adult, $10 student), or online at
