SSO Concert Features Suite from 'The Lord of the Rings'

SALISBURY, MD---A program of classical and contemporary works including a symphonic suite from the acclaimed film The Lord of the Rings will be performed at the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra at Salisbury University’s Mid-winter Concert, on Saturday, February 7, in Holloway Hall Auditorium. The evening, with works by Beethoven, Carl Maria von Weber and Gustav Holst, begins at 8 p.m. Guest conductor is longtime leader of the Salisbury music community and faculty emeritus at SU, Dr. Charles F. Smith, Jr.  A charter member of the SSO, the popular musician and teacher is probably most familiar to local residents as the 30-year conductor of the Salisbury Community Band. The program consists of March from ‘A Moorside Suite’ by Holst; Concertino for Clarinet and Orchestra in E flat major by von Weber with clarinet soloist Otello Meucci, and three movements from Symphony No. 1 in C major by Beethoven. The concluding selection will be the Symphonic Suite from “Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring” composed by Howard Shore and arranged by John Whitney. General admission is $15, $10 for seniors and SU ID holders, and $5 for children age 15 and under.  Tickets may be purchased at all locations of Peninsula Banks and Bank of Delmarva during lobby hours and at the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council Office.  Tickets will also be sold at the door.  For more information call 410-548-5587.
