Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 7:00 PM - Twelfth Annual Spring Concert! Stevenson High School, Lincolnshire, IL. "Isn't it Romantic II"
One of the Band's most popular concerts was Isn't It Romantic in 2006. Well, the Band is following that concert up again with the second edition of that performance with all new selections!
As always a mix of "classical" and Popular selections, some of the featured numbers include Holst's "Mars" from "The Planets" (if you loved Darth Vader's theme from Star Wars you will love this one!), the United States premiere of the band version of the Tchaikovsky 5th Symphony last movement, and music from the opera Carmen. Featured will be a rare Concerto for 2 French Horns with soloists Jesse Clevenger and Jamie Leff. Porgy and Bess won the 2012 Tony for Broadway revivals and the movie Les Miserables is on everyone's lips these days - music from BOTH these musicals will be on the program. The Buffalo Grove Jazz Band will perform music of Benny Goodman, Stan Kenton, and Buddy Rich. Not to be missed! $12 at the door, $10 in advance, $8 for students and seniors at all times. Contact the Village Hall at 847 459-2518 or see members of the Band for tickets!
