Dan Locklair’s “In the Autumn Days” will be performed by the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra (David Hagy, music director and conductor) as part of its Thanksgiving Family Concert on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 4 p.m. in Varick Auditorium on the campus of Livingstone College (701 West Monroe Street) in Salisbury, N.C.
Locklair is composer-in-residence at Wake Forest, as well as a professor of music.
Locklair writes, “’In the Autumn Days (A Symphony for Chamber Orchestra)’ was composed during the spring of 1984. It is dedicated ‘To the memory of Wriston Locklair (1925-1984),’ whose distinguished career as a critic included writings for Musical America and Opera News. His impact on my life was very significant.” Read Locklair’s complete notes.
