  • Looking back on SHOT travels through time

    According to a lot of music lovers, music is timeless. Therefore music and time go hand in hand. This autumn the student wind orchestra SHOT has brought time and music even closer in their concert SHOT travels through time. The past, present and future segued in the pieces SHOT has performed.

    In the piece The Sunken Village by Philip Sparke SHOT travels back to the Middle Ages. It is a symphonic poem based on the medieval legend about the town Vineta. According to this story Vineta was taken down into the Baltic Sea as a punishment for its immoral inhabitants. The piece Stone Age by Thomas Doss is a journey through three periods in human history: the Stone Age, The Middle Ages and the Modern Age. Moreover, Philip Sparke lets us take a glance into the future with his piece Two-Part Invention. Two soloists will show what beautiful inventions their instruments are. This provides hope that in the future equally great inventions will be done.
