Ewer composed all of the music and wrote the narration featured in the program. The piece follows Sir Ernest Shackleton from the events leading up to and through the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914. Ewer musically tells the story of the expedition, which was wrought with adversity and near catastrophe when the ship, the Endurance, became trapped in pack ice in the Weddell Sea. The crew was forced to abandon ship before the ship was crushed. Over the course of the next two years, the entire crew escaped with no loss of life, which eventually established Shackleton as a hero.
Tickets for the concert are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and are available at the door.
