Bring a Group!
Shared experiences become memories that last a lifetime!
Bring a group to the final concert of our 2017-2018 season of Sonic Stories! Our entire season took its inspiration from the Star Wars films and our Summer program is not an exception! Join us June 17, 2018 for A Long Time Ago…, a lively program of music that draws inspiration from ages past including a performance of Star Wars title theme which, since its premiere in 1977, has famously invited us to consider that which occurred "A Long Time Ago".
The musicians of Northshore Concert Band represent many professional backgrounds, and approximately half are professional music educators; the rest have a diverse set of occupations. They demonstrate to younger musicians that there are opportunities for them to play and enjoy their instruments their entire lives, regardless of whether they choose a musical vocation.
Student groups attending a program of world-class music submerge into an invaluable cultural experience that might be out of their familiar comforts and habits, giving them a unique taste of the world around them.
Adult and Senior groups of 10 or more can experience the musical excellence of the Northshore Concert Band at special group rates, making these unforgettable performances affordable and accessible for music lovers of all ages!

He has sung the national anthem at Wrigley Field, U.S. Cellular Field, and several other sports venues. Mr. Grapentine is a member of the Northshore Concert Band Advisory Board.
