Celebrate Valentine Romance with Storm Large
and the Winston-Salem Symphony

Assistant Conductor Stephen Mulligan to Conduct His First Plugged-In Pops! Concert
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (JANUARY 19, 2015) – Join the Winston-Salem Symphony for a romantic Plugged-In Pops! Valentine’s Day concert featuring dynamic vocalist Storm Large. Large and the Symphony will perform songs of love from a variety of genres ranging from jazz standards to rock ballads, smokehouse lounge songs, and more at a concert entitled “Valentine Romance: Storm Large–The Crazy Arc of Love.” Assistant Conductor Stephen Mulligan will conduct “Valentine Romance,” making his debut conducting a Plugged-In Pops! concert with the Winston-Salem Symphony.

The concert will take place Saturday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Reynolds Auditorium, 301 N. Hawthorne Road in Winston-Salem. Tickets range from $15– $67 and are available in advance by calling the Symphony Box Office at 336-464-0145 or online.

“Not only is Storm Large an amazingly talented singer, but in addition, she is an incredibly dynamic and unique entertainer,” said Maestro Robert Moody, Music Director. “I have worked with Storm before and she is an exciting and beautiful performer. I am delighted that Winston-Salem audiences will have a chance to hear her. I can assure you that you won’t want to miss her performance. Bring your special someone and spend a delightful evening celebrating love through an eclectic and beautiful selection of songs.”

Large and the Symphony will perform such favorite as My Funny Valentine, Under My Skin, Total Eclipse, Lady is a Tramp, Forbidden Fruit, Maybe This Time, In My Life, Lilac Wine, and more.

Storm Large is a musician, actor, playwright, and author who shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova. She has built a fan base that follows her around the world. In late 2014, Large and her band, Le Bonheur, released a record designed to capture their sublime and subversive interpretations of the American Songbook. Entitled simply, Le Bonheur, the recording is a collection of tortured and titillating love songs; beautiful, familiar, yet unique, much like the lady herself. Large also debuts with The New York Pops Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, The Cincinnati Symphony, The Houston Symphony, and The RTE Concert Orchestra in Dublin amongst others. She is busy creating a new musical with The Public Theater in New York City. Large made her debut as guest vocalist with the band Pink Martini in April 2011, singing four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. She continues to perform with the band, touring nationally and internationally, and was featured on their CD, Get Happy. Large also has sung with Grammy winner k.d. lang, pianist Kirill Gerstein, punk rocker John Doe, singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer George Clinton.

This concert and the Winston-Salem Symphony are sponsored by Season Presenting Sponsor Wells Fargo; Plugged-in Pops Presenting Sponsor BlueCross and BlueShield of North Carolina; the Arts Council of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County; and the North Carolina Arts Council.
