“The annual fish fry events are an exceptional community experience for all ages and appetites during the Lenten season,” says Lincoln-Way East Music Director, Dr. Bert Johnson. “Our Lincoln-Way East Music Boosters provide an exceptional opportunity for our students to perform and for our community to relax and enjoy some passionately prepared fish while listening to a variety of high school and junior high/middle school music ensembles play songs from every music genre imaginable.”

The cost for an adult to attend is $10. Tickets for children are $5 each. Guests are welcome to dine in or take advantage of the curbside carryout option. All proceeds will benefit the Lincoln-Way East Music Department.

“Each of the four events are a unique concert and we truly enjoy seeing our community return week after week during these events,” says Johnson.
