  • George Lepauw - Parisian Salon Concert
    Friday, September 4, 2015 - 7:30pm

    Pianist George Lepauw, 2012 Chicago Tribune Chicagoan Of The Year and Founder of The International Beethoven Project, to complete a rarely heard transversal of all 48 Preludes & Fugues of JS Bach's The Well Tempered Clavier on Friday, September 4 at 7:30pm.

    JS Bach's contemporaries may well have have had to wait twenty years to hear the sequel to Book I of The Well Tempered Clavier, but not so the patrons of the Northbrook Public Library! Just one month after his memorable performance of Book I pianist George Lepauw will complete the transversal of all 48 preludes & fugues with the rendition of Book II - a feat and a musical feast not to be missed as all Parisian Salon Concerts since the opening of the new auditorium have been given to full capacity audiences. Doors open at 7 PM.

  • Dave Specter - Jazz/Blues Salon Concert
    Friday, September 18, 2015 - 7:30pm

    Our fantastic new performance stage deserves a fantastic new concert series. The Friday Jazz Salon will feature Chicago artists who regularly perform in Chicago’s jazz, blues and folk clubs here to Northbrook. Our first performance will feature first- tier blues and jazz guitarist, Dave Specter, who has earned an international reputation as one of the premier talents on the Chicago blues scene. He has always brought intelligence and sharp, crisp playing to the music table, a sort of contemporary version of T-Bone Walker. He has recently been featured in Vintage Guitar and Downbeat magazines and has been a 5 time Critic’s Choice in the Chicago Reader.

    “Dave Specter is a global ambassador of Chicago blues” – Chicago Sun Times

    “One of the few top-tier guitarists” - Downbeat
