On Friday, May 17, at 7 p.m., The Village Chapel Music Series will end its fifth season with a program of orchestral music featuring two instrumental soloists: Alex Rodiek, of Atlanta, and John Tyson, director of music at Brownson Memorial Presbyterian Church.

Rodiek will perform Franz Josef Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto and Tyson will perform British composer Gerald Finzi’s Ecologue for Piano and Strings. The program will be bookended with Georg Frederic Handel’s popular sinfonia, Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, and Haydn’s Symphony 86 in D Major.

The orchestra will consist of professional musicians from Moore County and the surrounding areas. They will be under the direction of Stephen Gourley, director of music at The Village Chapel. Guillermo Ayerbe will serve as concertmaster.

The Village Chapel Music Series was founded in 2014 to feature musicians from Moore County and the surrounding areas, offering concerts free of charge to the community. “The Village Chapel is fortunate to be in a central location, right in the heart of Pinehurst, and boasts one of the most stunning worship spaces in the region, both visually and acoustically,” says Gourley. “This concert series was formed with the idea of offering musical presentations of the highest quality to the community, and we are proud to offer this exciting finale featuring a wonderful orchestra and such talented soloists.”
