Winds for Warriors Charity Gala
To celebrate the US armed forces and raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, the Capital Wind Symphony lets its stars and stripes fly. Hosted by retired Naval Commander Edward Abner, the inaugural Winds for Warriors gala sees the symphony pay tribute to those injured in the line of duty by accompanying a multimedia light show and video production with noble music. The centerpiece of the evening is Aaron Copland's Lincoln Portrait, a symphonic mashup of Americana that features slices of classic folk songs such as "Camptown Races" and "Springfield Mountain." Against this backdrop, a special guest reads some of the most inspiring passages from the Great Emancipator's historic speeches.
Capital Wind Symphony
Since 1991 the Capital Wind Symphony has honored the American band tradition while attracting an international assortment of musicians and soloists. Through performances of newly commissioned pieces and classic American compositions, the musicians demonstrate both that the brass tradition in this country is alive and kicking and that they may be smuggling blacksmiths' bellows inside their lungs. The Symphony also partners with music educators from across Washington, Maryland, and Virginia to stoke the fire of brass ensembles to come, and fundraises to pay tribute to the nation's military servicepeople.
