Salisbury Symphony performs ‘Two Doubles and Three B’s’ Saturday

The Salisbury Symphony presents “Two Doubles and Three B’s,” this Saturday, offering the music of Bach, Brahms and Beethoven at Keppel Auditorium on the Catawba College campus. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.; box office opens at 6:30 p.m.
Music Director David Hagy has planned a program sure to satisfy classical-lovers with traditional tastes. And there is an impressive group of musical guests waiting in the wings to make this concert particularly memorable.
The “Two Doubles” refers to two special duets. Joe Robinson, who just recently retired after 27 years as the principal oboe of the New York Philharmonic, will perform with his wife, violinist Mary Kay Robinson, in Bach’s Concerto for Violin, Oboe and Strings in C Minor. Robinson is currently artist-in-residence for Duke University.
Dan Skidmore, the Salisbury Symphony’s concertmaster, will play violin with his father, cellist Bill Skidmore, in Brahms’ Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra in A Minor, Op. 102. Bill Skidmore will have travelled here from Morganton, W.Va., where he is currently professor of cello for West Virginia University.
The program will end with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93. This has been the only Beethoven symphony that the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra has never performed … until now.
WDAV 89.9 FM is the media sponsor for this concert, and Piedmont Radiological Associates, PA, is the concert sponsor. A reception will follow the concert, hosted by the Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Guild.
Tickets are available at area ticket outlets: Belk in Salisbury Mall, Rowan County Convention and Visitors Bureau, A Step in Time, Sidewalk Deli, Green Goat Gallery in Spencer and Crescent Pharmacy in Rockwell; or by calling 704-637-4314.
