The first concert of the school year for the Shoreline Concert Band is Tues., Dec. 1 at at 7:30 p.m. at Shorewood High School Performing Arts Center at 17300 Fremont Ave N, Shoreline, WA 98133.

This special concert features three bands and a guest soloist. The Around the Sound Concert Band directed by Michael Alstad will begin the concert; then a special treat for concert band lovers, the University of Washington Wind Ensemble will play. This outstanding group is directed by Timothy Salzman. Now in his 29th year at the U of W he has become world famous as a conductor and teacher. He travels to Asia many times a year to guest conduct.

Finally the Shoreline Concert Band under the direction of Ken Noreen, in his 22nd year in that position, will end the program. The theme of the evening is “Pacific Rim Notes” and will feature several interesting pieces with this theme in mind. Richard Brown is a nationally known composer and has given the band the challenge of his new work, “Fantasy on a Chinese Theme.”

The guest soloist is Jeff Kashiwa who is currently teaching at Shoreline Community College. Kashiwa is a former student of Ken Noreen from when they were both at Shorecrest High School.

Noreen said, “Out of most 10,000 students, Jeff was one of the top five as a person and musician.

Kashiwa is a jazz saxophonist native to Seattle who became known on the music scene in 1989 as a member of popular contemporary jazz group The Rippingtons.

In 2004, Kashiwa created a new group called,”The Sax Pack” along with fellow saxmen and friends, Steve Cole and Kim Waters. Along with being cohesive musically, the trio share a unique and comical camaraderie on stage.

Kashiwa plays soprano saxophone, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, flute and the EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument). Kashiwa currently teaches online Music Technology and various ensembles at Shoreline Community College.

All of this entertainment has no admission charge, but you will be offered the opportunity to contribute to the Music Scholarship.
