Bittersweet News:

Our beloved Mrs. Dorothy Kitchen, founder of the Duke University String School, is retiring as director of the school and as conductor of the Youth Orchestra at the end of this season. Please join us as we honor Mrs. Kitchen following the 7:00 pm concert on April 26th at a reception hosted by the Music Department.

We are delighted to announce that Ms. Stephanie Swisher has accepted the position of Interim Director, and Ms. Shelly Livingston will be taking the position of Conductor of the DUSS Youth Orchestra.

Mrs. Kitchen will continue to give private lessons and to teach chamber.

Next concert: April 26th at 3:00 and 7:00 in Baldwin Auditorium.

The 7:00 pm program will include solo performances by Mrs. Kitchen's son Nicholas, daughter-in-law Yeesun, and grandson Christopher. The grand finale will be  the first movement of the Bach Double Concerto in D minor.  At this time, all DUSS alums (from earliest years to present!) and audience members are invited to bring their  instruments, stands and music to join the Youth Symphony on stage.
 
Following the concert, there will be several lovely presentations of gifts and tributes to Mrs. Kitchen -- in addition to our recognition of seniors.
 
After the presentations, everyone is invited to attend a dessert reception in Mrs Kitchen's honor in the Biddle Music Building.

Chamber concert: April 27th at 4:00 pm in the Nelson Music Room.
