Far Out! Harper Concert Takes Audiences Back to the '70s

Renowned Chicago musician Don Stiernberg will bring his trio to Harper College this weekend for an "Into the '70s" concert filled with tunes from some of the era's greatest music makers.

The performance is the latest in the College's "As Time Goes By" series, aimed at taking audiences on a musical tour of their childhoods and America's past.

The trio's playlist will feature an acoustic return to tunes from the likes of James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers and George Benson.

The concert is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 11 in Room A238, Building A on Harper's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.

"The appeal of this concert, like all in our series, will be the opportunity to travel back in time musically," said Henrietta Neeley, Coordinator of Harper's Community Music Center. "Those who loved this music in the past will enjoy hearing again the songs they sang and danced to during some of the most fun and memorable times of their lives."

Stiernberg has several critically acclaimed CDs and countless appearances to his credit.

Tickets are $19 for general admission. Advanced purchase is recommended. Call 847.925.6100 or visit www.harpercollege.edu/boxoffice.

Subsequent concerts in the series will feature the Ken Spurr Jazz Quartet (March 10) and performers Susan Dennis and Patricia Toledo in a salute to Broadway (April 14). To learn more about the Community Music Center's events, visit www.harpercollege.edu/arts.
