Education / Outreach

Northshore Concert Band is committed to music education and outreach. Here are just a few examples of how NCB enriches the lives of music students and residents of Chicagoland with high-quality education and outreach initiatives:

Lifetime of Music
Initiative

Dozens of outstanding Chicago-area high school musicians are invited to join NCB on stage for its February concert each season. This program, in its seventh year, aims to provide a rewarding musical experience to young musicians as well as expose them to the performance opportunities that await them beyond college, whether or not they choose to pursue music as a career.


This year's Lifetime of Music concert will be held on Sunday, February 9, 2014.



Festival of Music
at Northwestern University
March 20-22, 2014

The Festival of Music, now in its 38th year, attracts over 4,000 students for a comprehensive musical experience. Public and private school band directors bring their concert bands for a 50-minute clinic. In addition, school and private music instructors bring student soloists and ensembles to a day of adjudication, recitals, and specialized classes on wide-ranging musical topics—from instrumental technique to conducting.
