Locklair’s work to be broadcast

Dan Locklair’s “Hail the Coming Day (A Festive Piece for Orchestra)” can be heard on WDAV (http://www.wdav.org/) on June 13 at 7 p.m. and June 16 at 3 p.m., as part of broadcasts of the recording of the Winston-Salem Symphony’s season-finale concert. Locklair is a professor of music and the composer-in-residence at Wake Forest.

The piece was commissioned by the City of Winston-Salem to celebrate its centennial.

Locklair said: “Completed in January 2013, this approximately five-minute composition is in one movement and consists of five short sections. Scored for a large orchestra of triple woodwinds, triple brass, strings and percussion, the composition takes its title from an 1876 speech given by one of early Winston’s most influential leaders, Robert Gray.”
