Program Notes for Triumph
Program Notes for the Triumph concert are provided by Professor Renee McCachren of Catawba College.
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Triumph in Death. Lamoral, Count of Egmont, was a sixteenth-century Dutch general, nobleman, and statesman during a time of political turmoil and national unrest caused by the Spanish occupation of the Netherlands. Egmont’s execution at the hands of the Spanish Duke of Alba became a rallying point for other resistance fighters, eventually escalating to a national uprising that ultimately led to Dutch liberation and independence from Spain. Two centuries later noted German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe celebrated Egmont’s life, heroism, and martyrdom in his play Egmont.

The Salisbury Symphony Orchestra doesn’t let just anyone perform “The Nutcracker” with them, but last December, 14-year-old cellist Kevin Agner joined the group in the orchestra pit at Keppel Auditorium to perform.
Agner has been a student of Diane Bonds since he began studying cello approximately four years ago. He was a member of the Salisbury Youth Orchestra for two years and the Greensboro Youth Philharmonic Orchestra for one year. Most recently, he has been a member of the Greensboro Symphony Youth Orchestra.
Come Tickle Our Ivories
This is a novel partnership—in fact the first of its kind in the state!—between the Salisbury Symphony and Rowan County’s seven high schools that involves art students decorating donated pianos to be placed in outdoor downtown Salisbury locations from May through September for the public to play and passersby to enjoy any time!
The goal is to raise enough sponsorship money to cover costs, donate a portion to the schools’ art departments, and support the symphony that’s making this project possible.
Your tax-deductible contribution—for which we promise widespread publicity!—can be made online; by calling the symphony office; or mailing a check:
$100 – Keyboard level
$250 – Spinet level
$500 – Upright level
$1,000 – Baby Grand level
$2,500 – Concert Grand level
Want to give more? We’ll create a special category JUST for you!
