Late Winter Concert

"Amazing"

Sunday, March 6th @4pm/ Georgia Baptist Conference Center

 

Our next concert is just simply "AMAZING"!


The Maestro, Wm. David Stufft, has planned  an entertaining program

that pays tribute to an amazing man and showcases our amazing trumpet players.

 

The Orchestra will play "Amazing"  -- an original composition, by the Maestro, honoring the life achievements of Dr. Don Millar, long time TSO bassist and the person credited with playing a leading role in erradicating small pox.

 

And, as a special treat, the TSO welcomes Charles Calloway who is close to earning his doctorate in trumpet performance. Calloway is a featured soloist performing the Concerto for Trumpet by Hummel. He will also perform Bugler's Holiday with James Morden, his former teacher, and John Gorecki. We are thrilled that Charles will be joining us for this concert. 

 

Please join us for these amazing performances and more.

About Dr. J. Donald Millar

1934 - 2015

Husband, father, physician, rear admiral, assitant surgeon general and musician are just a few of the words that describe Dr. Don Millar.

 

The world owes a debt of gratitude to Don for leading the effort to erradicate smallpox from Africa and the world.

 

The Toccoa Smphony Orchestra is honored and humbled that Don played the string bass with us for several years.

 

His contribution to the world AND to our hometown Orchestra is nothing short of AMAZING!

 

He is fondly remembered and greatly missed. As a  tribute to him, we play!
