The program also features two works by acclaimed American composer David Maslanka. One of his works, California, premiered February 13, 2016 by the California All-State Wind Symphony and was conducted by Northshore Concert Band Conductor and Artistic Director Dr. Mallory Thompson. In his description of California Maslanka says, “Music lets us dream, and in that dream is the possibility of a new world, one in which humans live in harmony, within themselves, with all other people, with all other species, with the planet…our dreams start somewhere, let our music making be that place.”

Maslankas’ A Child’s Garden of Dreams was commissioned by and dedicated to Northshore Concert Band founder John P. Paynter, his wife Marietta Paynter and the Northwestern University Symphonic Wind Ensemble. Composed in the summer of 1981, it premiered on February 26, 1982 by the Northwestern University Symphonic Wind Ensemble conducted by John P. Paynter. Northshore Concert Band will perform A Child’s Garden of Dreams at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall at Northwestern University in Evanston where it was first performed 35 years ago.
