Triangle Wind Ensemble Presents An American Celebration: Through Time & Space

While this season marks Triangle Wind Ensemble's 20th Anniversary, it also happens to be the 50th Anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 mission, which landed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the surface of the moon. We celebrate this American achievement through a concert of music devoted to and inspired by space, the planets, stars, and the final frontier. No such concert would be complete without selections from Holst's The Planets, the 2001: A Space Odyssey soundtrack, and Star Wars. We will also feature the outstanding vocalist Marc Callahan.
