The Northshore Concert Band begins its 63rd season with a November 4, 2018 performance at the Pick-Staiger Concert Hall on the Northwestern University campus in Evanston, IL. ‘Letters From Home’ will include guest artists ~Nois Saxophone Quartet who will perform Concerto Grosso for saxophone quartet and wind band by Pulitzer Prize winner, William Bolcom. The concert, which kicks off a season of “Musical Journeys”, will feature the music of Aaron Copeland, Frank Ticheli and Peter Mennin. Program highlights include Copland’s’ sentimental and nostalgic Letter from Home, and Suite from The Red Pony. Bolcom’s entertaining and eclectic Concerto Grosso for saxophone quartet and band blurs the line between popular and ”serious” music. Ticheli’s colorful and energetic Blue Shades brings the program to a rousing conclusion. For more concert and ticket information visit www.northshoreband.org.
