DetailsThe Northshore Concert Band performs the third concert of its 62nd season on Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 3:00 pm at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall, Northwestern University 50 Arts Circle Drive in Evanston, Illinois. Conducted by Artistic Director Mallory Thompson, the program is entitled Rebellions Are Built On Hope… This program celebrates the strength and nobility of America, drawing connections between various periods and aspects of our country’s rich history. William Shuman, one of the most noteworthy American musical figures of the mid-twentieth century, is celebrated through three significant pieces. His Chester and When Jesus Wept set timeless melodies from the Revolutionary-era American songbook “The New England Psalm Singer”, composed by the first American choral composer William Billings. Charles Ives’ Variations on “America” renders the familiar patriotic melody in numerous settings, ranging from light-heartedly playful to powerfully bold. Commando March, written the year after Samuel Barber was drafted in the Air Force, encapsulates the patriotic spirit of American soldiers during WWII. This reflection on America’s adventurous spirit concludes with an exhilarating piece by lauded film composer John Williams. Program Highlights will include: • Variations on “America” – Charles Ives./Rhodes • Sanctuary – Frank Ticheli • Commando March – Samuel Barber • Chester – William Schuman • When Jesus Slept – William Schuman • George Washington Bridge – William Schuman • Scherzo for X-Wings – John Williams/arr.
