Registration is now open for the 2020 edition of our Young Person's Introduction to the Band Concert. This year’s concert theme is “Music Around the World.”
Everywhere we go in our lives, we find music. There is music at the mall, music in the movies, music on the radio, music at school, music in churches, music at sporting events. People like to exercise to music. Our forms of entertainment almost always feature music. If some alien creatures from another solar system observed us, they would almost certainly report back to their leaders: “These earthlings cannot survive without lots of music. It is one of their basic needs, along with food, air and water. All over the earth, people listen to music.” The musical selections we will play in the concert provide many examples of music we encounter during our daily life.
There is no admission fee for this year's program, thanks to a generous grant from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Arts Council of Greater Lansing, and additional financial support from members of the Lansing Concert Band.
The 2020 Study Guide is now available here.
