First Person: Seeing AmericaFri, March 30, 2012
8 PM Kenan Auditorium

Ensemble Galilei performs an awe-inspiring concert with traditional music from Scotland and Ireland as well as new compositions featuring fiddles, harp, viola da gamba, percussion, whistles and oboe. More than a concert, Ensemble Galilei’s current project—First Person: Seeing America—explores the beginnings of our country, as their transcendent and soulful music is coupled with images by some of America’s finest photographers and the poetry and prose of some of America’s greatest writers narrated  by radio host Neal Conan and actress Lily Knight.

Tickets $22 general public, $18 faculty and staff and $6 students. Call Kenan Box Office 910.962.3500 or buy tickets at www.etix.com.
