About Amy Heritage (Toledo, Ohio Author)
Amy Heritage joined the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra as principal flutist in 2002. She returns to Lakeside each summer, bringing with her an ever-widening circle of extended family.
Like many Lakesiders, Amy often finds herself telling the story of this special place to those who have never visited. Amy is grateful to her friend, Toledo artist Eleanor Hutton whose watercolor images beautifully recreate this town of sunshine, nostalgia, families, and music. Nora’s pictures also tell whimsical stories of the musicians of the Lakeside Symphony and how they work together to become the orchestra that is one of the treasures of Lakeside. The Lakeside Symphony Comes to Town was written especially for the youngest Lakesiders and for Amy’s great-nephew David. Amy hopes this book will entertain them during long winter months as they count down the days to another summer at Lakeside.
When she is not at Lakeside Chautauqua, Amy lives in Toledo, Ohio with her husband and son and their dogs Maggie and Scout. She plays flute in the Toledo Symphony, an orchestra with its own stories and history.
