Among the highlights of the Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston each spring are the choral concerts given by the Westminster Choir. The 2014 edition of the festival featured two programs, and we present highlights from each one this edition of the series. From a concert called Legends at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul, conductor Joe Miller leads the choir in a multi-faceted program ranging from the ancient to the contemporary. A second concert program at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist had the Charleston Symphony Chorus joining the Westminster Choir and members of the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra to perform Handel’s Te Deum, written to commemorate a British victory in the Battle of Dettingen in 1743.

We’re in the Sottile Theater of the College of Charleston for a concert by the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra with conductor Stefan Asbury from the 2013 season. The program has two familiar masterworks serving as bookends – the Rimsky-Korsakov Capriccio espagnol as an opener and the Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances to close the concert – and in between a suite of ballet music from the Hungarian composer, Bela Bartok. All three works serve as ideal showpieces for the abilities of this ensemble.

Dana Auditorium on the campus of Guilford College was the site of a gala concert for the Greensboro Symphony in January of 2016. It featured the world-renowned violinist Pinchas Zukerman as guest soloist. He teamed with conductor and fellow violinist Dmitry Sitkovetsky to perform a Bach concerto for two violins, and with South African cellist Amanda Forsyth to perform the Brahms “Double” Concerto.

The King of Instruments is in the spotlight on this episode. The setting is the Visitors Center at Old Salem Museums and Gardens, where in 2014 they celebrated the restoration of the historic 1800 David Tannenberg organ with a special concert series. This program features two events in the series.

The first features Marilyn Keiser at the keyboard for Mendelssohn and Bach, plus pieces by modern and contemporary composers with Winston-Salem ties. She’s also joined by Indiana University faculty artists for a trio by Haydn and a movement from a suite by Joseph Rheinberger.
