CLEVELAND, Ohio – Daniel Meyer traveled to Lakeside Chautauqua as a boy, performing in Hoover Auditorium as a member of the Singing Angels children’s choir.
He distinctly remembers the hall, how huge the 2,600-seat space felt. He also remembers the community, a quaint and peaceful place, perched on the Lake Erie shore.
“I had very fond recollections of what lakeside was all about,” he said.
So when the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra last year searched for its first new conductor in 47 years, Meyer was intrigued.
Meyer, a 47-year-old Brunswick native and Denison University graduate, tried out last summer, along with five other guest conductors. He won the gig as music director and conductor and will lead the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra as it opens its 56th season July 31.
For more than 140 years, Lakeside Chautauqua has welcomed families to the Lake Erie shore to take part in a summer Chautauqua experience dedicated to nurturing mind, body and spirit.
