Year of the Dragon


The Manhattan Wind Ensemble presents Year of the Dragon, a celebration of the Chinese zodiac. Set against the backdrop of New York's vibrant cultural tapestry, this concert promises to take you on an enchanting journey through the stars, with each note embodying the spirit and characteristics of the zodiac's astrological signs. From the powerful roar of the dragon to the graceful gallop of the horse, experience an unforgettable musical odyssey featuring pieces by Chen Yi, John Mackey, Eric Whitacre, Chen Qian, and more.

Founded in 2007, the Manhattan Wind Ensemble is one of New York City's premier wind orchestras, bringing together professional and semi-professional musicians to explore and expand the wind band literature. Known for its commitment to new music, including several world premieres, the ensemble continues to push the boundaries of symphonic winds.
