Chamber Music of Dan Locklair and Lawrence Dillon
to Be Performed by Carolina Chamber Symphony
Players in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on March 11

Reynolda Reflections by composer Dan Locklair and
Devotion by composer Lawrence Dillon will be
heard as part of Reynolda Reflections, a special
concert by the Carolina Chamber Symphony Players
on Sunday, March 11 - 3 p.m. in the James A. Gray
Auditorium of the Old Salem Visitor Center on the
grounds of Old Salem Museum and Gardens in
Winston-Salem, North Carolina. This concert is
presented jointly the Carolina Chamber Symphony Players (CCSP) and Old=
 Salem.

Each of the five movements of Locklair's
composition for flute, violin, and piano was
inspired by a specific painting in the collection
of Reynolda House Museum of American Art.
Dillon's work, for flute, violin, viola and
cello, is a single-movement work that hews
closely to a very simple theme in an unassuming manner.

Other works on the program include Robert Ward's
Appalachian Ditties and Dances for violin and
piano, Alan Hirsh's Blue Ridge Suite for guitar
and Elegy for Strings for violins, viola and
cello by Kenneth Frazelle. Four of the five -
Locklair, Dillon, Hirsh, and Frazelle - live in Winston-Salem.

Performers on the Reynolda Reflections program
are flutist Elizabeth Ransom, violinists Jacqui
Carrasco and John Fadial; violist Scott Rawls;
cellist Beth Vanderborgh; guitarist Joseph
Pecoraro; and pianist Peter Kairoff. The Carolina
Chamber Symphony Players, now in its 15th season,
is committed to enriching the cultural life of
our community by intimately engaging musicians
and diverse audiences in the passionate
performance of the finest chamber music of all periods.

Admission to this concert is $20. A 'Meet the
Composers' reception will be held immediately
following the performance. For tickets, call the
Old Salem Visitor Center at 336-721-7350. Tickets
will also be available at the door.

Internationally recognized composer Dan Locklair,
a native of Charlotte, NC, is
Composer-in-Residence and Professor of Music at
Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C.,
and Composer in Residence at the upcoming
Virginia Festival of American Voices. His
compositional output, influenced by a wide
variety of traditions, ranging from Medieval to
modern music, includes symphonic works, a ballet,
an opera, and numerous solo, chamber, vocal,
organ and choral compositions. His music has been
performed throughout Europe and North America by
many major orchestras, choral groups, chamber
ensembles and soloists. Several of these works
have received major awards, including the top
award in the 1989 Barlow International
Competition for 'changing perceptions & Epitaph'
and the 1996 American Guild of Organists Composer
of the Year Award. Among his other honors are
consecutive ASCAP Awards since 1981 and a Kennedy
Center Friedheim Award. His latest CDs, 'Dan
Locklair Orchestral Music' (Albany Records Troy
517), and 'Dan Locklair Chamber Music' (Albany

critical acclaim. Visit his newly redesigned website at=

Hailed by the Louisville Courier-Journal for his
'compelling, innate soulfulness,' Lawrence Dillon
has produced an extensive body of work
characterized by a keen sensitivity to color and
a mastery of traditional forms. A student of
Vincent Persichetti, Milton Babbitt, Elliott
Carter, David Diamond, and Roger Sessions, Dillon
became at the age of 26 the youngest composer to
earn a doctorate at the Juilliard School (1985),
also winning the Gretchaninoff Prize and an ASCAP
Young Composers Award. Currently
Composer-in-Residence at the North Carolina
School for the Arts, Dillon holds residencies at
numerous Summer festivals, and has been awarded
grants from the American Music Center and
National Endowment for the Arts, among others.
His works have received special commendation from
the 2003 Masterprize of London, been chosen for
the 2002 Jordania International Conducting
Competition in Kharkov, Ukraine and been
performed and broadcast throughout the Americas
and Europe. His lively Sequenza 21 blog 'An
Infinite Number of Curves' can be read at

subject of the January 2006 American Composer
feature by Kyle Gann in Chamber Music Magazine.
