Lansing Town Hall

Carol Dooley, President

Through its Celebrity Lecture Series, Lansing Town Hall has provided support for the Symphony’s annual operations since 1953. Patrons meet at the Eagle Eye Golf Club in Bath Township four times a year at 11 a.m. for a one-hour lecture, followed by an optional luncheon and opportunity to ask the guest speaker questions.

Season subscriptions are $102 for the four lectures, and $182 for the lectures and lunches with Q & A with the speaker; individual tickets can be purchased at the door, subject to availability. The 64th anniversary season features:

  • Chuck Underwood, October 15, 2018
  • Steve Hartman, November 12, 2018
  • Comedienne Jan McInnis, April 15, 2019
  • Music Interpreter Orin Grossman, May 6, 2019

Additional information about the series is available by contacting ticket chair, Margaret Hedlund, 517-323-1045 or the Symphony office, 517-487-5001.

ProSymphony

Shirley Paxton, President

The Pro Symphony organization was founded in 1947. Over the years its members have been staunch supporters of the Lansing Symphony serving in various capacities and contributing substantial monies from fundraising projects. Annually four regular meetings are held during the day. Currently, we provide refreshments to orchestra members at dress rehearsals and to chamber concert attendees. We hold a Poinsettia Sale in December and a Geranium Sale in May.

Fundraising projects enabled us to make a gift of $5,000 to the Symphony last season. We invite new members to join this group of committed women who enjoy working together in a common cause. Pro Symphony is an excellent opportunity to invest in the Orchestra in efficient, effective and rewarding ways. The annual dues are $20. Please call Nadean Hillary at 517-381-1354 or the Symphony office for additional information regarding membership or our activities.
