Sunday, June 4, 2017, 3:00 PM
Pick-Staiger Concert Hall in Evanston
ON THE TOWN

Northshore Concert Band - Jim Cornelison - Chicago Blackhawks - Dr. Mallory Thompson

Mallory Thompson
, conductor

Join us for a lively juxtaposition of dance rhythms from New York to Mexico as we celebrate the bond between the United States & Latin America. The jazz influence of Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town complements the folk tunes of H. Owen Reed’s monumental La Fiesta Mexicana. Aaron Copland, American composer and close friend to Leonard Bernstein for over 50 years, said “Strangeness between people breaks down when they live, work, and meet together as neighbors.” Come experience this sentiment through the exhilarating celebration of the human spirit! It is an NCB season finale you won’t want to miss!



Program highlights will include:

• In This Broad Earth - Steven Bryant
• Down A Country Lane
- Aaron Copland/arr. Merlin Patterson
• Three Dances Episodes from “On the Town”
- Leonard Bernstein/arr. Paul Lavender
• La Fiesta Mexicana
  - H. Owen Reed


Tickets are available in advance either online, by phone (847-432-2263), or at the Pick-Staiger box office in the lobby on the day of the concert. The box office will open at 2:00pm on Sunday, June 4.
