To Fly Unbounded

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” —Plato

Dreams of flight and music have been linked throughout human existence. We explore this connection through an innovative concert of narration and music recalling the milestones and pioneers of aviation. The Henry Sibley High School Concert Choir joins us as part of the Oratorio Society’s Viva Coro! youth engagement program.
