Let the joyous sounds of Jimmy Cliff's reggae/pop/soul fusion wash over you on the tree-shaded slopes of the Lillian Fontaine Garden Theatre. It's the ultimate summer concert experience: enjoying the outdoors and the great weather to the beat of funky, relaxed reggae music. Still going strong after 50 years of performing, the indomitable Jimmy Cliff puts on a show like no other. From the success of his early single "Hurricane Hattie" to the exuberant, socially-conscious songs of his latest album, Rebirth, Cliff has remained a potent musical force that can keep an audience moving with his enthusiasm and energy -- for music, for the wellbeing of the planet and for life.

The theme of the Wind Symphony’s season is “America the Beautiful.” Each concert explores a different aspect of America’s rich musical heritage. Their next concert, Chicago: My Kind of Town, gives concertgoers a sneak preview of the program that SJWS will perform later in the month at the 2009 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago.
The concert features two outstanding guest artists: French horn virtuoso Alicia Telford performs the Rondo from Richard Strauss’s Concerto No. 1, Op. 11; and baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington leads his jazz quintet in his own composition, Open Evidence. SJWS also honors the late composer Roger Nixon, performing Nixon’s classic Centennial Fanfare-March.
