In addition, Tom Stark, professor of trombone, will join the band for a solo performance from Johan de Meij’s

T-Bone Concerto. John Heath received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign. He went on to direct the Highland (Ill.) High School Band for 11 years, the Batavia High School Band for 22 years, and the Highland Municipal Concert Band as well as the Batavia Community Band, which he founded. Donations to the Ross Kellan Scholarship Fund will be accepted at the concert. The fund was established to honor Ross Kellan, a widely admired music educator and Elmhurst College faculty member.
