The Palatine Concert Band, under the direction of Dr. Frederick Lowe, opens its 2018–2019 concert season with “Music of Leonard Bernstein and Richard Strauss” on Sunday, November 4 at 3:30 p.m. at the Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center, 150 E Wood Street in Palatine.

Our featured guest soloist for the concert is Gail Williams, professor of music at Northwestern University and former associate principal horn in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, performing Strauss’s Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major for Horn.

Also included on the program are Allerseelen by Strauss, and the following works by Leonard Bernstein: “Danzon” from the ballet Fancy Free“Profanation” from Symphony No. 1 “Jeremiah,” and a suite from the operetta Candide.
