The Northshore Concert Band is a 100 Member Adult Symphonic Band based in Evanston, IL. Each year the ensemble and their director Dr. Mallory Thompson (Director of Bands at Northwestern University) hold a "Lifetime of Music" Concert in which area students can be nominated to perform with the group.
ZCMS 8th Grader Ezekiel Brown was one of 47 students selected to join the group out of a pool of over 200 nominations.

After joining the group for a single 60 minute rehearsal, Ezekiel and the other students performed at the Northshore Band's February 18th Concert on the stage of Northwestern University's Pick-Staiger Concert Hall. The students played 4 combined selections with the band.
