MCC to host two March concerts

CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College's Second Sunday Concert will feature the woodwind quintet Winds Off the Lake, beginning with a preconcert lecture at 2:30 p.m. Sunday by Russ Henning, followed by the concert at 3 p.m.

On March 13, a special St. Patrick’s Day concert will feature Irish music and dance at 7 p.m.

Both concerts take place in the Luecht Conference Center at the college, 8900 Route 14, Crystal Lake.

The Winds Off the Lake is returning to MCC for its 17th Second Sunday concert featuring Sue Childress on flute, Joyce Beernink on clarinet, Kathy Krepel on oboe, Randy Sundell on bassoon and Russ Henning on French horn. A reception will follow the concert.

The St. Patrick’s Day concert on March 13 will feature Pat Gaughan and L.J. Slavin, who will perform favorite Irish songs, ballads and instrumental tunes. Gaughan is an adjunct music instructor at MCC. 

The McNulty Irish Dancers also will perform traditional Irish jigs, reels and hornpipes, both in soft shoe and hard shoe. The McNulty School of Irish Dance is one of the largest, most active dance schools in the Midwest.

The March concerts are free and open to the public.
