The Blythwood Winds are blasting off to a galaxy far, far away to perform music from Star Wars, including an epic suite of music from the flick that started it all, Star Wars Episode IV: A NEW HOPE. But maybe outer space and epic storylines aren't your thing - never fear! We will also be performing arrangements of holiday favourites to get everyone in the mood for friends, family, and good cheer. We're especially excited that this concert features never-before heard arrangements by our talented horn player, Curtis Vander Hyden.
