See you in Rocky Mount

Posted May 16, 2008

What are you doing tomorrow evening? I’d love to see you in Rocky Mount.

Absolutely sensational! That’s how WRAL Meteorologist Mike Maze describes the Saturday forecast. That’s music to the ears of Al Sturgis. Al conducts the Tar River Philharmonic Orchestra. The forecast is also music to my ears because Lorica and I will be performing with Al and his wonderful orchestra tomorrow night at North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount.

The orchestra is comprised of musicians from Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Durham, Greenville, Rocky Mount and surrounding areas. It is an outstanding ensemble and I’m honored to be on the same stage with this group. The TRPO will perform four of my compositions in addition to a lively pops and patriotic repertoire. It really should be a fun evening!

Bring a lawn chair or blanket to the lawn in front of the Dunn Center at N.C. Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount. The Junior Strings will supply pre-concert music beginning at 5:30P.M. The orchestra performance starts at 7:30.

See you in Rocky Mount!

    It was an honor to meet you Saturday night in Rocky Mount, We enjoyed listening to you and your band. It was a wonderful night sitting outside listing to the Tar River Childrens Chorus and then the orchestra and to top it off listening to you and your band. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

    It was a pleasure finally being able to shake your hand and talk with you Saturday night at the Dunn Center. I remember the first time I heard your voice back in the early 80s booming over the North carolina News network and after sitting behind the news desk at the big 5. I had no idea how talented you are. Thanks so much for coming to Rocky Mount and sharing your talent with us. It was a wonderful evening.
