» The World Premiere of composer Dan Locklair’s Concerto for Organ and Orchestra will be performed by the Eastern Music Festival Orchestra, Gerard Schwarz, conductor, and soloist Susan Bates on Wednesday, June 29 – 8 PM at Christ United Methodist Church, 410 North Holden Road in Greensboro, North Carolina. This is a commission from the American Guild of Organists, Greensboro Chapter, for the 2011 Region IV AGO Convention in Greensboro from June 26-29. To learn more

The composer has written the following about the new work, “My Concerto for Organ and Orchestra is cast in three movements. Approximately twenty minutes in length, the composition is cyclic in nature with all movements being linked by that most basic of harmonic materials, the triad. Further, the 11th century plainsong melody, Divinum mysterium, is at the heart and soul of the serene middle movement. Even as the opening movement begins and ends with music of grandeur, the Concerto concludes with the highly rhythmic and driving third movement, the Toccata. I am very excited about this new concerto commission for the 2011 Region IV AGO Convention in Greensboro, North Carolina!”

Tickets for the June 29 concert are $15 and can be obtained by calling 336-653-0201 or visiting this site.
