Young Person's Introduction to the Band 2019
Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 10:00am, Wharton Center for the Performing Arts (map)
Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 1:00pm, Charlotte Performing Arts Center (Charlotte classes only)


Due to weather issues, it has been necessary to cancel this program for today. We hope you can join us for a future concert.

Registration is now open for the 2019 edition of our Young Person's Introduction to the Band Concert. This year’s concert theme is “Music All Around Us.”

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. However, all attendees must register their classes using the registration link to the right.

The 2019 Study Guide is now available. Click here for a pdf version.

Directions to Wharton Center and parking/drop-off information available here.
