A successful Broadway writer of mystery-thrillers is fighting a stint of writer’s block that is also creating a lack of cash flow. One of his recent students sends him a new script, which he immediately recognizes as a potential big hit! He and his wife scheme to get the young writer to accept him as “collaborator,” and the tension builds as the actions take us in surprising directions — as a mystery of our own unfolds on the stage!

NN Jazz Band and Percussion Ensemble Concert, Friday, May 6

Come hear the talented Niles North musicians Friday, May 6, 7:30pm in the NN auditorium.  The  Jazz Band and Percussion Ensemble will perform under the direction of Michael Moehlmann, Band Director. He welcomes special guest artist Koplant No, a jazz quartet. They are described as a forward-thinking, cinematic electro-jazz ensemble that fuses intricate compositions and jazz improvisation with electronica, progressive rock, and hip-hop. Called “one of the most innovative ensembles in the Midwest” by Minnesota Public Radio’s David Cazares, they are the recipients of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and have performed at venues across the country in New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., St. Louis, and at the 2015 World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, France. Their potent music has the rare ability to satiate the most discriminating jazz aficionados, while completely disarming the anti-jazz crowd, and has been described as “a textural feast for the mind’s eye.” Koplant No is: Joel Vanderheyden (tenor saxophone), Brian Lewis Smith (trumpet, laptop, keys), Drew Morton (bass, synth), and Rob Baner (drums, loops, vibes). 

See you there!

International recording artist Kishi Bashi will perform in concert with District 219 orchestra students, as well as musicians from McCracken and Golf Middle Schools at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3 in the Auditorium at Niles North High School, 9800 N. Lawler, Skokie.  There will be added singers, percussionists, and a student banjo player. This one-of-a-kind concert is free to the public.

Niles North High School is one of four schools in the country that will receive a performance from Kishi Bashi. The North Orchestras entered a contest earlier this year, uploading their performances of Kishi Bashi songs to YouTube, and were selected as one of the winners.Niles North’s YouTube Kishi Bashi entry.

NPR describes Kishi Bashi as “a master of building his music from the ground up, from live violin loops to layered singing to beatboxing, in order to create pocket symphonies steeped in classical music and 21st-century pop.” His music incorporates electronics, acoustic violin, singing and beautiful lyrics.
