"Working with a composer is alway exciting, but having the chance to premiere an original composition that was written especially for this group of students is a wonderful opportunity for the members of the Wind Ensemble," said Fine Arts Department Chairperson Brayer Teague.
Featured soloists in the triple-concerto include Michelle Hsu (sophomore), Emma Sassano (senior) and Isaac Stevenson (junior). The solo harp part will be performed by Hannah Young (sophomore). Each of these four students have been working directly with the composer for over six months in preparation for the premiere.
"I've shown the musical score to colleagues all over the world, and the reaction is similar each time someone looks at the music. They say, 'I can't believe a high school ensemble can play it," mused composer Don Owens as he addressed the musicians on stage during the final dress rehearsal. "You have my deepest admiration and respect for all the time and energy you have put into realizing this music."
The Graduation Concert will be held on Thursday, May 20, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. in the Clarence Johnson Auditorium of North High.

members of the DGN Choirs.
The Rip Chords are the premier women's a cappella group at the
University of Illinois. Brought together in 1992 by their love for a
cappella music, this evolving group of ambitious ladies has not
stopped captivating audiences since.
The Graduation Concert will be held this Thursday, May 20, at 7 PM in the Clarence Johnson Auditorium. Come hear the amazing sounds of the A Cappella Choir and the Wind Ensemble as we honor the Class of 2010. The program will feature several special musical highlights, including senior soloist Joe Garcia, the World Premiere of a special composition written especially for the North High Bands and guest-conducted by composer Don Owens, and an exciting performance of the powerful "Sinfonia Voci" which was composed to honor the students and faculty of Plainfield High School following the tornado that leveled that school twenty years ago this spring.
You won't want to miss this opportunity to 'send off' the Class of 2010! See you Thursday night at the Graduation Concert!
