In the Spring of 2015 the Winston-Salem Symphony featured a soloist saxaphonist for a concert at the Stevens Center. The program also included one of the ballet suites by a 20th century Russian master, a beloved Beethoven symphony and more dance music from a landmark Broadway musical. The Lenoir Sax Ensemble is also prominently featured in highlights from another program from the Lenoir Rhyne Concert Series.


If by chance you're at a point in life where some solace would be welcome, try to hear this Carolina Live program. The excellent Greensboro-based choral group Bel Canto Company present a concert titled In Time Of Strife, and there's music to assuage such a time from such composers as Arvo Part, Gerald Finzi, Morten Lauridsen, and even Dolly Parton and Carly Simon. The program also features the Rutherford Chamber Consort performing Johannes Brahms' Piano Quintet in g-minor. Ahhh... soothing just to think about it!


It can be exciting when someone of international renown is a special guest, and  this concert has that kind of buzz...the Greenville Symphony welcomes violinist Benjamin Beilman to this concert, and the gifted performer plays Johannes Brahms' Violin Concerto in D.  Also on the program are Richard Wagner's Prelude to Die Meistersinger and the Symphony No. 7 in d-minor by Antonin Dvořák.  Be sure to be with us for this much-awaited "return."


A single monumental work fills this edition of Carolina Live.  It's Johann Sebastian Bach's Mass in B-minor, which gave new form to the vocal music that Bach had composed throughout his career.  The performance is by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, the Taylor Festival Choir and the College of Charleston Madrigal Singers, so join us for this special concert.
