Experience the Musical Excellence of the Northshore Concert Band!
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to become part of the Northshore Concert Band’s 61st season! In November’s program, entitled Reflections, we are delighted to present two dramatic works by Dmitri Shostakovich and feature tuba soloist Gene Pokorny, Principal Tuba of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, in his first appearance with the Northshore Concert Band. Youthful Spirit in February aptly describes the energy of our “Lifetime of Music” concert, where we are joined by 40 of the most talented middle school instrumentalists in the Chicagoland area. The imaginative and beautiful collection of folk songs, Lincolnshire Posy by Percy Grainger, is a fan favorite!!!! Giving Voice to the Silenced in April honors Holocaust Remembrance Day with thoughtful repertoire including Theme from Schindler’s List by John Williams. This program also recognizes Earth Day with two moving works by David Maslanka. The season comes to a close in June with On the Town, a celebratory program featuring popular American and Mexican idioms in Three Dance Episodes from “On the Town” by Leonard Bernstein and La Fiesta Mexicana by H. Owen Reed.
Join us and experience the artistry, energy and excellence of the Northshore Concert Band.
