The Lakewood Project Upcoming Concert


Ashley Nelson

The Lakewood Project, a rock orchestra at Lakewood High School, will be joining E5C4P3 – Escape – The Journey Tribute Band for this upcoming concert. This concert is being held at the Lakewood High School’s Civic Auditorium on January 24th at 7:30 p.m.

The theme for this upcoming concert is “Don’t Stop Believin'”. The concert will have roughly 25 songs split up between Journey songs with E5C4P3 and rock tunes by Bon Jovi, Van Halen,  Eurythmics, Guns N’ Roses and Foreigner. Both the Lakewood Project and E5C4P3 will each do a set and then they will combine and do a set. 

The Lakewood Project, a 40-member rock orchestra, has so many very talented musicians. It is comprised of two electric string quartets, a 10-piece acoustic string orchestra, and a rock band section! This wide range of instruments will put on such a compelling concert!

Escape was formed in 1996 by professional musician Stu Simone. According to the Hermiston Herold, “Escape, a California-based tribute band, urges people to “Don’t Stop Belivin'” as they preform the the songs of Journey.”

Emma Carson, an electric violin player in the Lakewood Project, stated, “This is my fourth year in Lakewood Project. I am most excited to share some great 80s hits with the audience in a high-energy concert!”

To come see the talented Lakewood Project preform with E5C4P3, it will cost you just a few dollars. Tickets at the doors will be $10 for adults and $5 for students. For advanced purchases, the cost will be $8 for adults and $3 for students. You can get the tickets at Lakewood High School’s Bookroom.
