Fabian Lopez, concertmaster, is the violin soloist for e Four Seasons concerti. A concerti is a piece of one or more soloists with three or more move- ments.

Many of us have expectations of con- certs at locations such as Fayetteville State University, Methodist University and churches. e Fayetteville Sym- phony has made these options avail- able to the public. e Symphony on Tap series is classical music performed at local breweries. Beethoven, Bach, the music is free; pay for your beer. "Symphony on Tap is a new series with the goal to engage the community through music and beer," said Meghan Woolbright.
