CONGRATULATIONS to Maestro Rosenberg and our fine Union Symphony musicians as well as Joanna Reeder (soloist) for a sterling performance at the October 23 Opening Concert Night & Dédé held at The Batte Center, Wingate University. The program included works by Dédé, Piecatis, Rachmaninoff, Gottschalk and Brahms. The concert was prefaced by an entertaining and informative preconcert lecture Ghosts and Demons by youth orchestra director Mekel Rogers. Thank you to the expert staff at The Batte Center. Thank you also to Vivace Strings for their chamber performance in the rotunda. Most especially we would like to express sincere appreciation to our sponsors and patrons for their ongoing support this sixth season at Union Symphony. Orchestra Photo by Rick Crider.
