Celebrate Mother's Day with NIC in auditorium

Come celebrate moms with North Idaho College at the annual free Mother’s Day Concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 14, in Boswell Hall Schuler Performing Arts Center. Please note, the concert will be held indoors this year.

For 26 years, NIC has been honoring mothers with its annual concert. This year’s concert will feature several patriotic classics. It will be the last concert conducted by longtime NIC Band Director Terry Jones, who is retiring after more than 30 years at NIC.

The NIC Wind Symphony, conducted by Jones, will open with “The Star Spangled Banner, arranged by John Williams, followed by “Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite,” arranged by Glen Cliffe Bainum, and then “The Cowboys,” by John Williams and arranged by Jim Curnow. “Irish Tune from County Derry and Shephard Hey,” arranged by Percy Aldridge Grainger, “Chorale and Shaker Dance,” by John Zdechlik, and “Amazing Grace,” arranged by Frank Ticheli will round out the symphony’s first portion of the concert.

The NIC Chamber Singers will start with “Now is the Month of Maying” and “April is in my Mistress’ Face,” both by Thomas Morley. They will then perform “If I Fell” and “Can’t Buy Me Love,” which were written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and arranged by Keith Abbs. The NIC Wind Symphony will then come in for a performance of Jay Babcok’s “Legacy of Honor.”

The symphony and singers will team up to finish the concert, performing “U.S. Forces Service Medley” and “Time to Say Goodbye,” which are both arranged by Tom Tucker. The concert will end as it has traditionally ended with “America, the Beautiful,” arranged by Samuel A. Ward.
