"Robert Moody and the Winston-Salem Symphony did it up right in helping Winston-Salem celebrate 100 years since the consolidation of the towns of Winston and Salem in 1913 (quoth the Psalmist: “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity”), with a program featuring three contemporary American works and a popular masterpiece, as well as “pictures” to accompany them (projections by artist Andreas Fischer)." "Winston-Salem has reason to be enormously proud of such world-class music making. Bravo, Moody!"

Margaret Sandresky/Special Correspondent The winds of change circulating through the Stevens Center Sunday afternoon blew us into a new musical experience as Music Director Robert Moody and the Winston-Salem Symphony brought the 2012-13 season to a close. The occasion was an exciting tour de force, dubbed by Moody his “out-of-the-box” concert, which included a premiere, computer-generated art with electronic sound and the 21st-century music of two composers who were in attendance. The program was dedicated to the memory of Martha Linnell, a violist in the orchestra who recently passed away. The program began with the world premiere of Dan Locklair’s “Hail the Coming Day,” commissioned by the City of Winston-Salem to celebrate the centennial of its consolidation. Locklair, who is composer in residence and professor of music at Wake Forest University, took the title from a speech made in 1876 by Robert Gray, who said he hoped for the day “from which shall rise one common town.” Locklair

By Haleigh DiIullo March 31, 2013 at 3:38 pm The Phoenix Symphony former resident conductor Robert Moody returned to the Valley on Saturday to conduct the symphony to an inspiring and entertaining performance. Moody, along with being artistic director for Arizona Musicfest, is also the music director for the Winston-Salem Symphony in North Carolina and the Portland Symphony Orchestra in Maine. The symphony began with a piece titled “Desert Transport.” Inspired by a helicopter tour overlooking the many landscapes of Arizona, Moody and Mason Bates created an epic story of sound of the history of the native Pima Indians. Moody and Bates were inspired by the Tonto Ruins located near Payson and wanted to create a classical piece that would describe the spirit of the people. Moody conducted the men and women of the Phoenix Symphony in the exciting accelerating tempo of “Desert Transport,” instilling an image of the beautiful desert landscape of Arizona and transporting the audience to t

Posted: Monday, February 11, 2013 12:31 am Margaret V. Sandresky/Special Correspondent The Winston-Salem Symphony and Chorale presented a Valentine’s Day concert Sunday afternoon with a program dedicated to romance. The concert was divided between American composer Howard Hanson's Symphony No. 2 subtitled "Romantic," completed in 1930, and French composer Ravel's "Daphnis et Chloe," composed in 1912 for Diaghilev's Russian Ballet on a story adapted from a romance of Greek antiquity. Hanson and Ravel invite comparison because they were both 20th-century composers and their professional lives overlapped for almost two decades. Hanson was born of second-generation Swedes in Nebraska. Ravel was born of a Spanish mother and a Basque father in southern France. "Daphnis and Chloe" was written the year before Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" and two years before World War I, while Hanson's Symphony was composed on the cusp of the Great Depression. Hanson's symphony has been loved by many for its

“Centenary United Methodist Church was packed with music lovers for the first of two well-prepared performances of the complete standard version of Handel’s Messiah. This was the sixth annual pair of performances since Music Director Robert Moody initiated the series using members of the Winston-Salem Symphony and his specially selected and prepared Messiah Festival Chorus. Moody’s interpretative choices, his consistent selection of excellent soloists, and his scrupulous preparation of the chorus and orchestra have made this a destination event for the Triad.”

"The combined choirs of the Winston-Salem Symphony Chorale and the University of North Carolina School of The Arts Cantata Singers created sounds so pleasing at the Stevens Center that it will not be a performance soon forgotten. The performance opened with Alexander Borodin's perennial favorite Polovtsian Dances. Taken from his sole opera, Prince Igor, they fully embody the exotic, Oriental flavor that the “Mighty Five” liked to spice their compositions with. Not an easy work to play, the orchestra displayed excellent form in tackling this note-heavy work. The woodwinds in particular did a wonderful job of handling Borodin's tricky writing, especially the clarinets. The chorus, while certainly loud, might have done a better job of diction, however they are to be commended for their precise intonation and plucky handling of the text. Russian isn't an easy language to sing. Robert Moody's conducting offered not only a robust, exciting interpretation but also kept the proceedings well
