In a dazzling display of virtuosity, The Air I Breathe shows how the human body can harness the power of air and use it to express identity. The musicians from Arcadia Winds conjure up a rainy day in bed, a fairy tale world of wild imagination, the god of the East Wind, and a steaming locomotive. Students will deepen their understanding of woodwind instruments and learn how to master their own breath as a creative, joyful and life affirming force to make music and sound.
