The Northshore Concert Band opens its season of musical “Reflections” with a diverse program that embraces a world of freedom and fellowship. The concert’s driving opener, Magnolia Star, is a jazz and blues-inspired work byemerging American composer Steve Danyew that celebrates the Illinois Central Railroad and the symbolic way that its route brought art together in America. We are honored to welcome Gene Pokorny, Principal Tuba of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 1989, for his first solo performance with NCB! The concert concludes with two contrasting works by Dmitri Shostakovich that commemorate the October Revolution of 1917. His familiar and celebratory Festive Overture was written and premiered in just three days in 1954. October, the composer’s only tone poem, was written in 1967 and depicts the struggle and triumph of humanity throughout history.
