SHS orchestra performs with guest steelpanist Liam Teague
Sycamore High School Orchestra will welcome steelpan professor Liam Teague as a guest artist at its upcoming concert on Tuesday. The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Sycamore High School Auditorium. Admission is free.
The Concert Orchestra will perform Rimksy-Korsakov’s “Russian Easter Overture, Rhosymedre” by Ralph Vaughan Williams, and “Adelante! Adelnate!” by Chuck Elledge. The Chamber Orchestra will perform three pieces with Teague on steelpan. “Tico Tico,” “Triplets” and “Pan in A Minor” are authentic pan compositions that have been arranged for orchestra.
Teague serves as the head of steelpan studies and associate professor of music at Northern Illinois University, and co-directs the Northern Illinois University Steelband. His commitment to demonstrating the great musical possibilities of the steelpan has taken Teague to Europe, Asia, Australia, North and Central America, and the Caribbean. He has performed with many diverse ensembles, including St. Louis Symphony, Chicago Sinfonietta, Vermeer String Quartet, Dartmouth Wind Ensemble, University of Wisconsin-Madison Marching Band, Nexus, Starlift Steel Orchestra and others.
