This Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band program highlights music that reflects the struggle for equality around the world. Be among the first to experience the Chicago premiere of Colors: A Celebration, a special 2013 commission by the Atlanta Freedom Bands for the 2013 Lesbian and Gay Band Association Annual Conference. Native Chicagoan Mark Camphouse wrote A Movement for Rosa to honor civil rights heroine Rosa Parks. David Maslanka was inspired by the Vietnamese Buddhist pacifist-monk Thich Nhat Hanh and the meditative practice of mindfulness to compose Give Us This Day. He wrote: “Give us this very moment of aware aliveness so that we can build a future in the face of a most dangerous and difficult time.” The concert culminates in two works that inspire a sense of victory, transcendent peace, and hope for the future: Mendelssohn's triumphant Wedding March, followed by Frank Ticheli's shimmering work based on the American lyrical poet Sara Teasdale's There Will Be Rest. Single Tickets: $20. $12 senior and student. ON SALE OCT. 7. A portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales will benefit Equality Illinois.
