Salisbury Symphony presents The North Carolina Symphony in concert

Featuring Beethoven’s 4th Symphony and other popular works by Bizet, Tchaikovsky, Gershwin and more, led by rising conducting star Wesley Schulz

The Salisbury Symphony proudly announces the return of the North Carolina Symphony to our community for a special concert, which will take place on Thursday January 18 at 7.30pm at Keppel Auditorium on the campus of Catawba College.  For over 35 years the Salisbury Symphony has presented an annual guest concert by the North Carolina Symphony; the only city in our region that hosts the state’s official orchestra.

This year’s concert will feature Beethoven’s 4th Symphony, Bizet’s Suite from Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Waltz from Eugene Onegin, Gershwin’s Overture to Girl Crazy, Shostakovich’s Festive Overture Op. 96, and Gimenez’s La bada de Luis Alonso.

Wesley Schulz

The North Carolina Symphony will be led by one of the hottest new conductors in the US, Wesley Schulz. Schulz made his Seattle Symphony debut in a sold-out performance with singer/songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov, led seven world premieres at the Merriman Family Young Composers Workshop, and assisted with recordings for the symphony’s Grammy-winning label, Seattle Symphony Media.  He has also led numerous orchestras across the US including Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, Britt Festival Orchestra, Texas Chamber Group, Austin Symphony Orchestra, The Venice Symphony, Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra, Auburn Symphony, and the Juneau Symphony.

Founded in 1932, the North Carolina Symphony is a vital and honored component of North Carolina’s cultural life. Its 175 concerts and events annually are greeted with enthusiasm by adults and schoolchildren in more than 90 North Carolina counties—in communities large and small, and in concert halls, auditoriums, gymnasiums, restaurants, clubs, and outdoor settings. The Symphony’s 66 full-time professional musicians perform under the artistic leadership of Music Director Grant Llewellyn.

Tickets range from $5-25. Visit www.salisburysymphony.org or call 704 216 1513.
