Welcome Back to Lakeside, Girl Named Tom
Girl Named Tom – the talented sibling trio of Bekah, Joshua and Caleb Liechty – is widely known for their distinct harmonies, beautiful arrangements and heartfelt performances that sing to the heart. In December 2021, nearly 7 million viewers watched as Girl Named Tom was crowned the Season 21 champions of NBC’s “The Voice,” where they made history as the first-ever group to win the popular singing competition. Tickets are still available!
Parking is limited on the Lakeside grounds. Please park in the South Gate Lot off Route 163 and the grass area around the Lakeside Schoolhouse. Shuttle service is available. Parking at the Hotel Lakeside and Fountain Inn is reserved for hotel guests only.  
The doors to Hoover Auditorium will open at 6:30 p.m. Queue lines will start to form at 5 p.m. outside Hoover Auditorium (115 W. Third St.) along Third Street and Walnut Avenue. ADA access to Hoover Auditorium will begin at 6:15 p.m.
Please present your concert ticket (physical ticket, mobile or printed ticket) upon entering Hoover Auditorium. Seats are general admission and available on a first-come, first-served basis. All members of your party must be present before seating.
