    The Dreher Orhestras presents a holiday concert featuring Atlanta-based composer Tyler Grant's A Glimpse of Winter. Both Ralph Vaughan Wiliams's beautiful setting of Greensleeves and Katie O'hara Labrie's Calm and Bright setting of Franz Gruber's Silent Night just sound like winter. Closing the concert is the original orchestra work credited as the most popular holiday piece of music for the last decade, Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride.

    HUGE congratulations to Dreher Orchestras member Sam Schatz for being selected as a member of the 2021 All-National Symphony Orchestra. He qualified to audition by being selected as an All-State Orchestra Member (South Carolina Music Educators Association), and completed and audition that included some very difficult music. He found out this week that he was selected as a member based on his audition, and now is considered to be one of the best high school violinists in the country!!!
