The Essence of Ebb & Flow

At Ebb & Flow, opening concert, Union Symphony Orchestra performed to receptive guests, twice receiving standing ovations. Symphony patrons, including special guests from the Sun City Carolina Lakes were welcomed to the concert which was held on Saturday evening, September 27, at The Batte Center, Wingate University.

Union Jazz, under the direction of Dennis Contreras, entertained guests with a pre-show in the rotunda. A reception followed the concert.

Soloists Javier Perez (oboe), Chris Griffin (horn), Kevin Streich (clarinet), and Joshua Hood (bassoon) were especially well received for their performance of Sinfonia Concertante for Four Winds by Mozart.

BetterCarPeople and Big Ring Interactive were honored for their ongoing contributions as season sponsors. A season poster was presented to Matthew and Stephanie Belk during the concert. (L to R: Matthew Belk & Stephanie Belk, Caleb Barnhardt, Richard Rosenberg & Caitlin Rosenberg, Stella Baucom, and Kim Norwood).
