CHICAGO, Jan. 23, 2014 — Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles ( ) today

announced its first digital album release: Stand Up! A Musical Celebration of Equality, featuring

the Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band with conductors Kyle Rhoades and Jason Duran. This

special commemorative download was recorded live during a one-night-only concert on Nov. 9,

2013 in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood following the news that Illinois would become the 15th

state to grant same-sex couples the freedom to marry.

During this special performance, the Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band presented the Chicago

premiere and second performance of "Colors: A Celebration" by Tim Jansa, a special commission

by the Atlanta Freedom Bands for the 2013 Lesbian and Gay Band Association Conference. This

piece stands as a musical interpretation of the Gay Rights Movement—from Stonewall to the

present—and reflects the diversity, strength, and unbreakable spirit of the LGBT community.

This recording also includes "A Movement for Rosa," a musical tribute to civil rights hero Rosa

Parks by Chicago composer Mark Camphouse, "Candide Suite" and "Somewhere" ( from West

Side Story ) by Leonard Bernstein, as well as "Wedding March" by Felix Mendelssohn. Additional

masterworks inspire a sense of victory, transcendent peace, and hope for the future.

Available for digital download from iTunes, Amazon and other digital outlets starting today, this

recording reflects the artistic identity of the ensemble's programming and highlights its

commitment to performing works by LGBT composers alongside masterworks from a variety of

musical genres.

The Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band is part of Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles, a recognized

501( c ) ( 3 ) nonprofit organization. Inducted into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame in

2011, the Lakeside Pride Freedom Marching Band, Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band, and

shhh...OUT! Lakeside Pride Jazz Ensemble together reach more than one million people
