Join The Ringling for a special outdoor concert featuring the Windjammers! The Windjammers are a dynamic group of retired circus musicians performing circus music to delight and amaze.
In circus lingo, “windjammers” refers to circus musicians who “jammed their wind” through their instruments usually twice a day for big top performances. Circus music catered to the needs of the different acts. For example, a high-flying trapeze act could be characterized by a graceful waltz. An act containing animals, such as lions, would probably use a march.
The Windjammers Unlimited is a 501(c) 3 historical music society that is dedicated to the preservation of traditional music of the circus.
This concert is approx. 1 hour long, 3:00PM -4:00PM. It is included with Museum Admission ($25) or Bayfront Gardens Admission ($5) for adults and free for members and children under 17.
