Description : The Wilmington Symphony presents the 2016-17 Masterworks Series Season Finale on Saturday, April 22nd at 7:30 pm. Cuban composer Leo Brouwer (known for scoring the film Like Water for Chocolate) has written prolifically for the guitar, and Justin Hoke makes his WSO debut playing Brouwer’s Concierto Elegiaco. The symphony rounds out the season with Dmitri Shostakovich’s sparkling music for the Soviet film The Gadfly, including “Romance” with its beautiful solo violin melody that is known to television audiences as the theme music for the PBS mini-series Reilly, Ace of Spies!

Dr. Hoke was awarded first prize in the 2012 Florida State University Doctoral Concerto Competition, and top prize in the 2010 Appalachian Guitarfest International Competition, among others. He is an active soloist, chamber musician, and educator. Performance credits include Panama City Orchestra, Florida State University Orchestra, and the Appalachian State University Guitar Orchestra. In addition, Dr. Hoke has performed in solo and with ensembles across the East Coast in a variety of musical styles. He currently performs throughout the region as a member of the North Carolina Guitar Quartet.

His debut solo album Open Sky was released in late 2015 and is available online. "Superbly played... very highly recommended" –Marvin J. Ward, CVNC.org. For more information about his recordings and performances visit www.justinhokeguitar.com.
