Pick-Staiger Concert Hall | Evanston, Illinois
This concert celebrates both the youthful spirit of our student guests and that same spirit that exists in all of us. Percy Grainger toured the British countryside, collecting folk songs and preserving them on wax cylinders. His colorful masterwork, Lincolnshire Posy, is a delightful depiction of both the folk songs and personalities of the folk singers that he recorded. In a highlight of the season, some of the most talented young musicians in the Chicagoland area join the Northshore Concert Band for our ‚ÄúLifetime of Music‚ÄĚ program. The students and band members combine to perform exuberant music that expresses a cheerful American spirit with heartfelt optimism!
