Local Pianist Marc Hoffman to be among the NC composers honored at January 26th concert 

The Salisbury Symphony Orchestra will premiere a new work by NC composer, Marc Hoffman on their Sunday, January 26th concert. The concert, entitled "Come Hear North Carolina," will take place at 4:00 pm at Varick Auditorium on the campus of Livingstone College in Salisbury, NC under the direction of Music Director, David Hagy.

A tribute to the music of and composers from the Great State of North Carolina, the concert will also feature the Rowan All-County 5th Grade Honors Chorus and a new work by Wake Forest University Composer-in-Residence, Dan Locklair.

“The piece by Mr. Hoffman being performed, Astral Force, consists of seven short movements based on cues from a score I composed for a TV pilot”, Hoffman says. “The show hasn’t aired so I released the soundtrack independently last September because I enjoyed working on the project and didn’t want to shelve the music. I was delighted to arrange this piece for the up-coming Salisbury Symphony Orchestra concert.”
