Salisbury Symphony Orchestra Performs 'Home for the Holidays' Concert December 12

'Home for the Holidays'SALISBURY, MD---The Salisbury Symphony Orchestra at Salisbury University (SSO) continues its 30th anniversary season with its annual Holiday Concert, “Home for the Holidays” with returning guest tenor Dominic Armstrong on Saturday, December 12.

Directed by Dr. Jeffrey Schoyen, the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in Holloway Hall Auditorium. The concert is the culminating event in SU’s 2015 Winter Music Festival, “The Sounds of Salisbury: A Family Gathering.”

Since his last concert with the SSO in 2012, Armstrong has performed with some of the most well-regarded orchestras in the U.S., including the Boston Symphony and New York Philharmonic. He also made his Carnegie Hall debut.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute and the Juilliard School, Armstrong has performed with Deutsche Oper Berlin, Opera Regio Torino and the New York City Opera, among others. He also has sung at Ireland’s Wexford Opera Festival.

Opera News says Armstrong is a “vocal standout,” adding that he leaves “a sizeable mark” on the stage. The Wall Street Journal has called him “unbeatable.” The Washington Post hails him as “vocally strong” and “passionate.” The New York Times lauds him as “suave” and “versatile.”
