2018 Summer Series​
We were so pleased to provide our annual free summer concert series. The 2018 program themes were exciting and energetic! We began our first week in July with "Ella!" with beautiful ballads and familiar jazz tunes with the Winds and guest singer Norma Bass! We followed that concert with "A Centennial in the Making". This program celebrateed the 100th birthdays of both Leonard Bernstein and Tidewater Winds founder Sidney Berg. The third week of programming continued with "America! Let Freedom Ring", a celebration of our harbors and ports with the world premier of Chris Palestrants' composition "Port of Freedom". We closed the 2018 season with an upbeat final program visiting some of the greatest solo performers that made their own path in music. The Winds performed the songs of John Denver, James Taylor, Billy Joel, Michael Jackson and many more. Guest artist BJ Griffin returned to the stage to join the Winds in this closing performance. Thank you all for a fantastic summer!
