From the balm of grace before sleep to the exuberance of an African American church service, this program of music by contemporary composers including Omar Thomas and Adam Schoenberg will have you shouting in jubilation!
Join the Triangle Wind Ensemble as we perform the score to the 27-minute animated film, The Snowman, which will be shown on the big screen.
This charming British favorite tells the tale of a young boy who creates a snowman that comes to life. Together the two embark on a series of adventures around the world, all set to beautiful music, including the famous "Walking in the Air".
We round out the program with cherished and novel holiday tunes to delight and surprise.
The Snowman — Howard Blake
Sheltering Sky — John Mackey
Sleigh Ride — Leroy Anderson

If you've enjoyed TWE's past musical creations, we invite you to become a Season Sponsor and become a part of the team. Season Sponsors receive a variety of benefits, including complementary tickets, as enumerated on our Sponsors page. Please contact us with any questions you may have, or click the button below to become a Sponsor today!
While we get the most satisfaction performing concerts for live (and large!) audiences, during the pandemic, TWE was able to continue to create great music, albeit with the aid of digital technology. One project we are particularly proud of is our virtual recording project, Soaring. The video is set to beautiful music and shows off expansive views of Cary, NC. We've been headquartered in Cary since our founding in 1999, and continue to exist in no small part due to the wonderful support we receive from the Town of Cary and all of its citizens. Thank you, Cary, for providing a great place for us to call home!
During our 2018-19 season, the Triangle Wind Ensemble celebrated our 20th Anniversary Season. While many groups commission compositions for such milestone anniversaries, we decided to take a different approach. We instead chose to give ourselves, and the wind band community as a whole, the present of an original Fantasia-like animation specifically created to accompany an already existing piece of wind band music. The piece we chose was John Mackey's beautiful composition, Sheltering Sky. We premiered this animation at our concert on April 13, 2019 and received a wonderful reception from our audience. We hope that this gift will help engage audiences across the globe, because the animation is now available for use by concert bands and wind ensembles worldwide, who may obtain a license to screen the animation during their own performance of Sheltering Sky.
