Outdoor Fireworks Concert:

The Band Perry

Saturday, July 6 | 7:30pm | Kidd Brewer Stadium

Since releasing their self-titled debut album in 2010, The Band Perry has ascended to dizzying heights. Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid, the band has notched a string of hit singles, including the quadruple-platinum and No. 1 Billboard Country chart hit "If I Die Young", the platinum "You Lie" and the Country No. 1 single "All Your Life." Their latest album, Pioneer, focuses on the last three years of their lives and is the first recording the trio feels truly captures the full throttle intensity of their live shows. The result is a collection of country rock stompers like "Better Dig Two" and "Done." The songs on Pioneer are tailor made for arena shows.


The Broyhill Chamber Ensemble

July 8, 10, 22 & 24 | 8:00pm | Rosen Concert Hall

July 8 - Reflections: Part One - Showcases the singularly expressive range of the violin and the diverse manner in which composers have exploited it. The use of musical dialogue will be contrasted with performances of Beethoven’s Violin Sonata and Webern’s Four Pieces for violin and piano.

July 10 - Reflections: Part Two - Picks up where “Part One” leaves off. A cello sonata from Beethoven’s late period contrasts with the Violin Sonata heard in “Part One,” and is contrasted with a duo for viola and cello by Paul Hindemith. This time, Bach is paired with Fancy on a Bach Air by John Gorigliano (The Red Violin), written 270 years later. Concluding the program will be Robert Schumann’s powerful Piano Quartet, contrasting his respectful underscoring for Bach as heard in “Part One.”

July 22 - Reflections: Part Three - Takes us from Bach’s Baroque era with its famous Trio Sonata format, to a string trio by Beethoven and finally to the ever popular Piano Trio by Mendelssohn.

July 24 - Reflections: Part Four - Demonstrates the development of the Trio form from the Baroque era to the Classical, followed by the blooming of the Piano Quartet form, not only by simply adding an instrument, but by making all voices equal partners. The concert and the chamber series will come to a close and full circle from the opening program by adding yet one more instrument to perform Robert Schumann’s rousing Piano Quintet.

Triad Stage: "Tennessee Playboy"

July 12 & 13 | 8:00pm | Valborg Theatre

Written and directed by Preston Lane and performed by Triad Stage. Freely adapted from J.M. Synge’s "The Playboy of the Western World."

It’s just another rainy night at a 24-hour truck stop in East Tennessee when a stranger staggers in with a shocking tale of a murder most foul. He killed his father, he claims — knocked him over the head and left him for dead. Desperate, Chuck Macadie begs for a place to hide. His story is so thrilling and his deed so daring that instead of turning him over to the law, the locals embrace him as a hero. But his fortunes change when his “dead” father suddenly appears. This world-premiere adaptation is a celebration of first love, tall tales and second chances.




EMF Young Artist Orchestra:

"Peter and the Wolf"

Poem for Flute and Orchestra with soloist Julian Rose

Sunday, July 14 | 4:00pm
| Rosen Concert Hall

The Tannenbaum-Sternerger Young Artists Orchestra and the Greensboro Ballet gives life to Prokofiev’s classical child’s tale Peter and the Wolf, in which a young boy fearlessly captures and then saves a wolf. Designed to introduce children to the sounds of orchestral instruments, each character in the story is represented by a different instrument: the bird by a flute, the duck by an oboe, the grandfather by a bassoon, the cat by a clarinet, the wolf by three horns and Peter by the strings. The Young Artists Orchestras are comprised of Eastern Music Festival’s outstanding pre-professional musicians, ages 14-22.

Thursday, July 25 | 8:00pm
| Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts
