YOUTHFUL SPIRIT

Northshore Concert Band - Jim Cornelison - Chicago Blackhawks - Dr. Mallory Thompson

Mallory Thompson
, conductor

This concert celebrates both the youthful spirit of our student guests and that same spirit that exists in all of us. Percy Grainger toured the British countryside, collecting folk songs and preserving them on wax cylinders. His colorful masterwork, Lincolnshire Posy, is a delightful depiction of both the folk songs and personalities of the folk singers that he recorded. In a highlight of the season, some of the most talented young musicians in the Chicagoland area join the Northshore Concert Band for our “Lifetime of Music” program. The students and band members combine to perform exuberant music that expresses a cheerful American spirit with heartfelt optimism!.


Program highlights will include:

• Stampede – Steven Bryant
• Lincolnshire Posy
– Percy Grainger/ed. Frederick Fennel
• Overture to Russian and Ludmilla – Mikhail Glinka/arr. Matt Johnston


Tickets are available in advance either online, by phone (847-432-2263), or at the Pick-Staiger box office in the lobby on the day of the concert. The box office will open at 2:00pm on Sunday, February 12.
