Winston-Salem Symphony & Chorus: Conductors' Showcase

cl-WEB-robert-moody-150The closing concert of the Winston-Salem Symphony’s 2011-2012 Season was a showcase not only of the orchestra and its Chorale, but also of the conductors affiliated with the orchestra. Associate Conductor Matthew Troy opened the program with Respighi’s tuneful suite based on Renaissance music, and then Winston-Salem Symphony Chorale director Carole Ott oversaw the performance of Brahms’ choral setting of Schiller’s funeral song. Music Director Robert Moody brought it home with a rousing rendering of Carl Orff’s 20th century masterpiece.
