Buffalo Grove Symphonic Band/Wind Band Classics
Lincolnshire, Illinois
Sunday, 19 May 2019 - 7:00 PM
Presenting the Buffalo Grove Symphonic Band’s Eighteenth Annual Spring Concert – “Wind Band Classics”.

Some of the most beautiful, expertly composed, and exciting music has been written with for bands (no strings of any kind). This concert will feature original pieces for Bands – music that truly can be described as “classics” in the genre. Music going as far back as Felix Mendelssohn in one of the earliest pieces for winds alone the 1824 Overture for Band will be featured as well as the music of such great composers as Percy Granger, Gustav Holst, and others. Of particular interest on this program will be a long-lost arrangement of selections from Howard Hanson’s Opera, “Merry Mount” as arranged by the late Chicago composer Charles Garland. This selection has not been heard since 1968 but will be performed tonight!

Our Jazz Band will perform four selections, two by classic modern jazz band arranger, Sammy Nestico, and two made famous by the late, great jazz trumpet virtuoso, Maynard Ferguson (Country Road and Gospel John).

We hope you enjoy this performance of music you may have not heard before, but will please you as much as it pleased the Band to prepare. Please “spread the word” about us and join us for our Summer, Fall, and Holiday performances throughout 2019. We have plans for many more wonderful concerts in the future as we move into our nineteenth, and yes, our Gala 20th year!

As always for those and other concert dates, please follow the Band at and for news on those upcoming performances, including our Annual July 4th Concert and Fireworks performance at the Buffalo Grove Rotary Green.

Again, on behalf of the members of the Band, the Village of Buffalo Grove, its Board and Village President, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support that has allowed us to be one of the premiere Community Bands in Illinois.
