This show captures the spirit of flight from the earliest dreams through the journey to the stars. We open with “Dreams of Flight”, slow and mysterious building to a big full band fanfare. Next, we relive early flight with “Wright Flyer”, an up-temp opener with a ragtime feel in a tribute to the Wright brother’s first flight. This is followed by a ballad titled “My Soul is in the Sky” inspired by a quote from William Shakespeare featuring several soloists and some quiet moments. This immediately segues into “Celestial Journeys”, an exciting contemporary-themed finale building to a “blast-off” and dramatic conclusion. When it comes to visual possibilities—The Sky Is The Limit!
