The Paper Days, a Minneapolis folk-rock band, have composed a work based on “To Kill a Mockingbird” to be performed with The Northstar Campus Band called – Maycomb. The performance is free. Student musicians from around the state will be attending. It is open to the public!
It is an opportunity for high schools around the state to take on a challenge of a new work that mashes up old and new – both in music and story. The music keeps a foot in classical and and in contemporary camps. The story of To Kill a Mockingbird opens the door to discussion of social issues relevant today and in 1960 when the book was first published.
