Support Overview

Since 1956, Northshore Concert Band has been bringing the best in wind band music to Chicago’s North Shore and beyond through our subscription series concerts, guest engagements in concert series throughout the Chicago area, and CD recordings. In addition, we run several educational programs for music students from elementary through high school including our Festival of Music, Lifetime of Music concert, John P. Paynter Scholarship, and other events. We also serve as a resource for other community music groups, having published a how-to manual for community band organization and administration.

Concert ticket sales cover only a small portion of these activities. It is the generosity of foundations, corporations, and individuals that sustains us. Please consider one or more of the following ways to help make Northshore Concert Band’s musical and educational efforts possible.

Silent Auction and Raffle
Each year at the February concert, the Northshore Concert Band hosts its annual silent auction and a raffle for two round-trip airline tickets. All proceeds benefit the band's education and outreach programs.
