Announcing our 62nd season! Don’t miss your chance to hear the musical excellence of Northshore Concert Band! The entire season takes its inspiration from the Star Wars films and music from those films will be featured in each of our programs! Here are just a few highlights of our 2017-2018 season of “Sonic Stories”.

• In November we present STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE featuring John Williams’ Star Wars Trilogy which includes music from three Star Wars films.

• Our fall concert will also feature guest soloist clarinetist Andy Hudson. A rising star, he has been hailed as “a treat for the listener” and praised for “an uncommon singularity of purpose, technical virtuosity, youthful vigor and a mature sensitivity.”

• TRULY WONDERFUL THE MIND OF A CHILD IS…, our winter program, celebrates the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with Overture to Candide and Slava!.

• On February 18, 2018, we are joined by 60 talented middle school students in our annual Lifetime of Music program to perform American music including Cantina Band and The Imperial March as part of our Star Wars series.

• April brings us a concert honoring our American heritage in a program entitled REBELLIONS ARE BUILT ON HOPE… with music by William Schuman, Charles Ives, Samuel Barber, and John Williams’ exciting Scherzo for X Wings (from Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

• The June program, A LONG TIME AGO…, is inspired by music borrowed from the Renaissance and reimagined for today including Flourishes and Meditations on a Renaissance Theme by Michael Gandolfi, complete with a guitar introduction!
