While our wind ensemble is comprised of a wide variety of wind instruments, there is one wind instrument which we don't typically feature at our concerts: the human voice. This concert, however, features several compositions which will unite our sound with the marvelous voice of soprano Melissa Martin.

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.
