Drawn-Out Gala Week: October 18–24, 2020

SECCA relies on community support to exhibit exceptional and revelatory works of art, like those seen in Drawn: Concept & Craft, currently on view in our Main and Potter Galleries. Your contribution during Gala Week helps provide vital support during this challenging time, so SECCA may continue bringing world-class exhibitions, experiences, and education programs to the community.

Winston-Salem Symphony

London Calling

Make a night of it and return with us (virtually) to the Stevens Center stage as we celebrate the opening of a Reimagined season. Haydn’s brilliant final symphony was written while the composer was living in London and heralds the city as its namesake. New York-based, London-born Anna Clyne’s Sound and Fury quotes Haydn and lends a 21st Century color to an 18th Century instrumentation. Rossini’s ever-popular overture to The Barber of Seville adds a humorous touch to this stylish program.

Winston-Salem Symphony

American Landscapes

The work of Winston-Salem’s own Dan Locklair is at the heart of a program that paints the American landscape on a sonic canvas. In Memory—H.H.L. is a dedication to Locklair’s own mother and recalls a familiar church hymn. Copland’s Appalachian Spring, long an audience favorite, is presented in its original ballet score for 13 players. Czech composer Dvořák, who lived in America at the height of his fame, presents a shimmering and lively Serenade for strings alone. You’ll love the dance rhythms and refreshing sounds of this concert.

Winston-Salem Symphony

A Carolina Christmas: Unwrapped!

The holidays wouldn’t be the same without sparkling lights, presents under the tree, and the anticipation of gathering with friends and family. Although we are unable to promise the large musical spectacular you’ve come to know and love, we still plan to unwrap Christmas one carol at a time. Join us and celebrate the holidays with your cherished Symphony family. Stay tuned! Details about this concert will be unwrapped later in the fall.

Winston-Salem Symphony

Beethoven's "Pastoral Sextet"

We may not know Beethoven’s exact birthdate, but we know that it was mid-December in 1770. In honor of the great composer’s 250th birthday and the community-wide BTHVN Rocks Winston-Salem collaboration, the Winston-Salem Symphony and the Moravian Music Foundation are coming together for this special performance. The Moravian Music Foundation has a rare 1st edition of Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony in its archives; this concert will feature a string sextet arrangement of this beautiful work, plus a rarely-heard Beethoven work for four trombones.
