Shackleton’s Incredible Journey is GLCO’s 2023 “Legends & Mysteries” educational concert at Great Lakes Center for the Arts in Bay Harbor, 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 a 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 the Great Lakes Center for the Arts Next Gen program.

Optional Pre-concert talk at 6 PM
Free tickets are available for veterans, active service members, and students 18 and under by calling 231-487-0010
