Concert season is in full swing (sometimes literally) in the Northern Illinois University School of Music, with a host of opportunities to hear great music performed by talented students.
There’s something for every musical taste, from NIU’s quartet-in-residence, the Avalon String Quartet (Nov. 5) to a number of great jazz performances, to the NIU Philharmonic (Nov. 14), two performances of Opera Theatre (Nov. 13 and 15), the world-famous NIU Steelband (Nov. 11), the NIU Percussion Ensemble (Nov. 12) and more.
Tickets cost $5 for adults and $3 for students. NIU music majors get in free. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. Student recitals and are free.
The fall season concludes with a couple of can’t-miss holiday concerts, Swingin’ in the Holidays (Nov. 25) and the Holiday Choral Concert (Dec. 2).
