Salisbury Symphony to perform Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons'

The Salisbury Symphony Orchestra takes to the stage on Nov. 19 with only two pieces on the program that nevertheless will fill the evening.
Vivaldi’s popular “Four Seasons” is first to be played. Maestro David Hagy has chosen to begin the piece with “Autumn” in recognition of our current season. Four of the orchestra’s finest violinists are soloists, one per season: Concertmaster Daniel Skidmore, Associate Concertmaster R.J.Wohlman, Assistant Concertmaster Sarah Womack, and Principal Second Violin Allison Willet.
Vivaldi wrote sonnets to accompany each of the movements, and those will be displayed on the screens on either side of the stage in both Italian and English for the appropriate season.
In addition, the Land Trust of Central North Carolina has collected breathtaking photographs of the seasons and will share those on the screens as well.
After intermission, Dvorak’s Symphony 9, “From the New World” will take the audience back to America at the turn of the 20th century. A visitor to the “new world,” Dvorak was captivated by the energy and synergy of the people and their music as Dr. Renee McCachren mentions in the program notes, “It was through his total immersion with those cultures that he captured the spirit of African-American and Native American music in his melodies.”
The concert will be held in Varick Auditorium on the campus of Livingstone College, beginning at 7:30 p.m. The box office opens at 6:30 p.m. Tickets at the door are $20 for adults, $6 for students (ages 9-18), and $4 for children, and may be purchased in advance at ticket outlets Belk (Salisbury Mall), Convention & Visitors Bureau, Sidewalk Deli, Green Goat Gallery (Spencer) and Crescent Pharmacy (Rockwell), through PayPal at www.salisburysymphony.org or by phone at 704-637-4314.
