The Rome Symphony Orchestra's Music Director and Conductor Richard Prior has received the prestigious 2009-2010 Emory University Winship Faculty Award. This competitive award allows a senior faculty member to take a one-semester leave of absence to pursue a major research or creative project. Also a Pulitzer-nominated composer, Dr. Prior will be using the time to write both a clarinet concerto and his third symphony. The clarinet concerto will be performed and recorded by the National Symphony of Ukraine, the Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra in late summer 2010 and his third symphony will receive its premiere performance on March 3rd at EmoryUniversity. Dr. Prior will however, continue to conduct the RSO throughout the season as well as the EmoryUniversity and Youth symphonies.
The three classical concerts are performed at the Rome City Auditorium. 7:30 p.m. 601 Broad Street Historic Downtown Rome, Georgia
Maestro Richard Prior will engage the audience at each concert with descriptions and anecdotes regarding the pieces being performed and his thoughts on the selection of the music for the concert. Mr. Prior will speak at the beginning of each concert in the Auditorium from the podium.
The Picnic at Darlington will take place at the Huffman Center, Darlington Campus. 7:00 p.m.
