    Join Erik Dyke, double bassist for the N.C. Symphony since 1978, for a wonderful afternoon performance that spotlights the exceptional talents of those who contribute to great symphony and popular music. 

    Erik will be joined by his friends David Meyer; cello, Georgia Schmidt; violin, Carol Ingbretsen; soprano; and Brad Hunnicutt; piano.  Among other selections, they'll have a Vivaldi Concerto for 2 cellos, some Rachmaninov, and a Piazzolla Tango; and are hoping to have a Puccini Aria and something by Cole Porter, too.  And there will be a surprise ensemble to conclude the program with a Beatles medley and a famous Russian Folk Song!

    This is sure to be a special concert in the acoustically advantaged Main Gallery of the Page-Walker.

    What a special treat to have Bill Leslie performing in the Main Gallery on St. Patrick’s Day!  Bill recently retired from his news anchor role at WRAL-TV in Raleigh.  Bill is also known as a new age record artist who, along with his World Music band Lorica, performs traditional as well as Celtic fusion music composed by Leslie. Leslie has also composed music featured on albums by Bragh Adair.  This will certainly be a special afternoon for all who attend.
