Join the Charles River Wind Ensemble for Distant Journeys on Sunday, June 9 at 7:00 pm at the First Baptist Church in Newton
Grab your passports and join the Charles River Wind Ensemble in far-off adventures. Find your path as Somerville-born Armenian-American composer Alan Hovhaness takes us on Three Journeys to the Holy Mountain. Ascend to the stars as the Charles River Wind Ensemble's own principal trumpet Jason Huffman moves us Towards a Constellation. Witness the world-premiere of New Hampshire composer Spencer Topel's take on travel with Trans-verse. And let your imagination run free through Middle-earth in Johan de Meij's monumental masterwork, Symphony No. 1, “The Lord of the Rings.” Pack your bags—this musical voyage is one you don’t want to miss.
