Sadly, the Music of John Williams concert at Booth Amphitheatre has been cancelled due to poor weather. Tickets purchased via eTix will be refunded within 7-10 days.
Stay in touch, as we hope to present this concert sometime in the near future.
John Williams has been called America's greatest living composer. Best known for his film scores, he has also composed music for the concert hall, TV, The Olympics, and presidential inaugurations. This exciting program of popular and dynamic works will also include a patriotic tribute in recognition of Memorial Day weekend.

Soaring Over Cary
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.
