Here is information about some recent North Shore Choral Society concert seasons.
Our 80th Season: 2015-2016
The theme of our 80th Anniversary season was "Songs of Peace" to Sing, Share, and Inspire! In addition to concerts, we planned events involving schools, community organizations, and peace groups. Faith Keady was our Conducting Apprentice this season.
NSCS was represented at the One State in the Arts conference held in Evanston, September 27th – 29th. NSCS members served as volunteers at the conference, and a NSCS concert recording was played during lunch. The NSCS 80th Anniversary video was available for viewing throughout the conference.
In the fall we held an 80th anniversary party for members, alumni, family, and friends; here is a link to the 80th Anniversary slide presentation (3.5 MB PowerPoint file) shown at the party. Plus we joined the Evanston Symphony Orchestra for their traditional holiday program An Evanston Symphony Christmas on December 6, 2015. The NSCS presented a Holiday Concert at Three Crowns Park Retirement Community in Evanston on Sunday, December 13, 2015.
Our 79th Season: 2014-2015
The theme of this season was "Ring/Sing/Swing"! We performed three exciting concerts, plus we joined the Evanston Symphony Orchestra for their traditional holiday program An Evanston Symphony Christmas on December 7, 2014.
The NSCS presented a Holiday Concert at Three Crowns Park Retirement Community in Evanston on Sunday, December 14, 2014, and also sang at the First Night Evanston celebration on December 31, 2014.
Our 78th Season: 2013-2014
The theme of this season was "Heaven and Earth" because it took us to Heaven, brought us back to Earth, and returned us to Heaven! Music expresses what cannot be said solely with words and has the power to transform our lives. It is composed for all occasions – to worship, to celebrate love, to commemorate significant events, to rejoice in births and console mourners in death, and to prompt social change.
