Concert around the world closes Kish band season

The Kishwaukee Concert Band will present “Passport” at 3 p.m. May 18 in the Boutell Memorial Concert Hall of the Northern Illinois University Music Building in DeKalb. This concert is sponsored by Everything’s a Gourd gourd crafting by Lowell May. Dave Lehman and Gene VandenBosch are the conductors, with Mark Baldin as the guest trumpet soloist.

Carmen Dragon’s arrangement of Samuel Ward’s “America, the Beautiful,” “Hands Across the Sea,” “Chimes of Liberty” are some of the American selections to be played on the trip around the world.

“Colonel Bogey March” is another familiar selection that will be easily recognized.  Selections from “Les Miserables” will take the journey to France, and on the Latin/Spanish part of the tour come “El Relicario,” “Malaguena,” and “Carribean Dream.”

The concert marks the end of the volunteer band’s 12th season. The band is made up of people 18 and older who have played a wind or percussion instrument in the past.  There are no auditions. Rehearsals begin in September for season 13. Rehearsals are held from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays at Huntley Middle School in DeKalb.

Clarinets are especially needed.
