‘Remembrance!’

Linda Jones

Executive Director,  Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Society

On Saturday, March 12, the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra presents an evening of remembering. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., in Keppel Auditorium on the Catawba College campus, they will perform four beautiful pieces while sharing the incredible talent of Bryan Hall, violinist. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased at the box office the evening of the concert.

Music director David Hagy begins the concert with a fanfare, John Duffy’s “Heritage Fanfare,” to be precise, described by the Chicago Tribune as “haunting, memorable and brilliant,” receiving the prestigious Peabody Award and an Emmy for “Outstanding Music.” This piece flows effortlessly into Dan Locklair’s “In Memory-H.H.L,” a lyrical piece to prompt sweet memories…

John Sibelius’ Violin Concerto in D Minor is considered one of the hardest violin concertos ever written, with “lush and passionate melodies,” according to Renee McCachren, music professor at Catawba College, in her Program Notes (which may be read in advance at salisburysymphony.org). Bryan Hall may make it seem easy!

Although Bryan was born and raised in this area, he will travel all the way from Alaska to perform this with the Salisbury Symphony.

Currently, he serves on the faculty of the University of Alaska Fairbanks as the violin-viola professor and pedagogy coordinator. He is also Concertmaster of the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra, conductor of the Northern Lights Symphony Orchestra, and conductor of the Fairbanks Youth Symphony Concert Orchestra.

David Hagy first conducted him in 1998, when Bryan, at age 10, performed Vivaldi’s Violin Concerto in A Minor with the Winston-Salem Piedmont Triad Symphony Orchestra. Because of family in the area, Bryan will remain a few days after the concert and has planned to meet with the Rowan Youth Orchestra the following week.

Following intermission, the Orchestra will perform the powerful Symphony No. 6, “Pathetique,” by Tchaikovsky. Concert sponsors Dennis and Kathi Hill invite the audience to linger in the lobby for light refreshments and to meet the performers after the concert.

Concert-goers will also have an opportunity to register to win two free tickets to WDAV’s “An Evening with Robert McDuffie and Friends,” a concert to benefit WDAV (our season’s Media Sponsor) and Davidson College. Entry forms will be available in the lobby, and the winner will be announced that evening.

Tickets to the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra’s March 12 concert are $23.75 for adults, $6.50 for students, and $4.25 for children ages 8 and younger; Balcony For A Buck is also offered for this concert. Concert tickets are available at Rowan County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Sidewalk Deli, Pinocchio’s (Spencer), Crescent Pharmacy (Rockwell), and Corriher Springs Florist (China Grove).

Tickets may be purchased also through PayPal on the Symphony’s website (www.salisburysymphony.org), or by credit card by calling the Symphony office at 704-637-4314.

The box office will open at 6:30 p.m. the evening of the performance.
