Shackleton’s Incredible Journey

Start Date: January 27, 2023 19:00

End Date: January 27, 2023 20:00

Shackleton’s Incredible Journey is GLCO’s 2023 “Legends & Mysteries” educational concert, focusing on the leadership of Ernest Shackleton, one of the principal figures in the age of Antarctic exploration. In this true survival story from 1915-1916, Shackleton leads the men of the Endurance voyage through almost two years of shipwreck (crushed by ice), camping on ice, and an incredibly perilous rescue mission, to survive against all odds.

Audiences are given an immersive musical experience as they watch the story unfold through live theater and original voyage film footage, with the GLCO orchestra performing exhilarating 20th century orchestral masterpieces representing the qualities of Shackleton’s leadership, including a sense of purpose, loyalty, optimism, ingenuity, and responsibility.

During the afternoon, 500 7th – 9th grade students will experience the program as part of GLCO’s collaboration with Great Lakes Center for the Arts’ Next Gen program.

The public is invited to the 7 PM performance. Optional preconcert talk at 6 PM.
Tickets $20 general admission, and $40 VIP with post concert meet and greet reception. www.glcorchestra.org
