Western Piedmont Symphony: Maestro Debut

Matthew TroyIt’s an exciting event when an orchestra introduces a new Music Director and conductor, and the Hickory, NC-based Western Piedmont Symphony did just that with a concert titled Maestro Debut. Matthew Troy is the group’s leader, and in the concert he led the orchestra in Sibelius’ Finlandia, Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A-minor and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. It was a most impressive way for Maestro Troy to begin, and you can enjoy it on Carolina Live.
