2017 to be Maestro Robert Moody’s final performance
10 years is a healthy tenure…
From the beginning as Music Director of the Winston-Salem Symphony, Robert wanted the orhestra to work under one artistic leader’s vision, allowing for the possibility of a very short extension of that tenure IF the artistic chemistry and contributions were still vibrant.
Regarding his time with the Symphony, Maestro Moody remarked,
“I’m incredibly proud of all that we’ve accomplished, and all that we still have to accomplish in the coming season and a half. I will always think of Winston-Salem as ‘home’ and will remain the single greatest fan of the Winston-Salem Symphony.”
During Bob’s tenure, the Symphony has celebrated many significant achievements, including: expansion of the Symphony’s annual concert offerings; addition of special concerts featuring world-renowned superstar guest artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Judi Collins, Renee Fleming, Joshua Bell, and Rhiannon Giddens; and growth of the Youth Orchestras program.
Maestro Moody has been a driving force in establishing Winston-Salem as a nationally-recognized cultural center through his innovative concert programming, engagement of international guest artists, and showcasing of our stellar local Symphony musicians.
If you get the opportunity to witness his stellar orchestra direction in person, you won’t walk away disappointed. He’ll be moving on to Memphis and Phoenix so for the fans in those areas, you have much to look forward to. Check your calendars and look for details on the 2017 concert season, which will be a celebration to the local community.
