Mon, Nov 27, 2023
The High Point University Community Orchestra, under the director of Professor of Music, Dr. Brian Meixner, presents “Sounds of Water”. For centuries, composers have been writing music that explores the properties of water and its connection to sound. This performance includes two of the finest examples - Bedřich Smetana’s The Moldau and Mississippi River Suite by American composer, Florence Price. Featured on the program is HPU Instructor of Percussion, Mr. Louis Raymond-Kolker, as steel pan soloist on his own composition, Summer Springs. Also featured is the winner of 2023-24 HPU Student Concerto Competition.
