Truly Glorious

Last Sunday, March 29, Union Symphony performed a collaborative concert with Wingate University Singers at The Batte Center of Wingate University. The first half of the evening featured both Union Symphony Orchestra and Wingate University Singers, as well as Soloist Seth Bingham, directed by Kenney Potter as they performed Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms. Union Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Richard Rosenberg performed Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 3 in D, opus 29, The Polish. Both performances received standing ovations.

Symphony & Psalms Reception

unnamed-4The Union Symphony League hosted a reception for supporting patrons in the C. Douglas Helms Art Gallery at Wingate University. It was an occasion where we could say thank you to the ongoing support of Union Symphony. The refreshments were delightful, the art gallery featuring the woven creations of Dr. Louise S. Napier added such a unique panache, and members of the league exhibited their characteristic elegance and hospitality as they greeted symphony guests. We are grateful to our patrons — including the lovely members of the Union Symphony League.
