Locklair's music to be performed at WFU

Dan LocklairDan Locklair’s A Pilgrim’s Lot will be performed by the Piedmont Wind Symphony (Robert Simon, Artistic Director) as part of A Celebration of Winston-Salem on Tuesday, May 8, at 7:30 p.m. at Brendle Recital Hall. Locklair is composer-in-residence and professor of music at Wake Forest.

“A Pilgrim’s Lot (A Concert Piece for Band) was composed for my Wake Forest University colleague, Kevin Bowen, and the Wake Forest University Band Program,” Locklair said of the piece that was written in 2000. “In one movement, the composition is based on a melody entitled, A Pilgrim’s Lot, from the early American shape-note hymnal, The Sacred Harp, 1860.”

Conducted by Jeff Whitsett, the concert will also feature Bowen as a guest conductor Bowen and a performance by the Winston-Salem Youth Chorus, directed by Barbara Beattie.
