Charleston Symphony Brass Ensemble
Thursday, April 8: 7:30pm at Church of Our Saviour
An evening of spectacular, original compositions for brass as performed by our own Charleston Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet. The varied program features music by composers Tony DiLorenzo, Russian composer Victor Ewald (the inspiration for his Quintet for Brass is drawn from the string quartets of the late German Romantic era), and Leonard Bernstein, as well as a selection of other jazz-inspired music from the last century. The eclectic repertory and chameleon-like nature of the brass quintet will dazzle you with added commentary by the performers.
Tickets are available at Kiawah Island Town Hall beginning March 25, 2010 (March 22 for Kiawah residents).
Thursday, April 15: 7:30 pm at Turtlepoint Clubhouse
Joining us from Vail, Colorado, guitarist Rod Powell will entertain us with his American folk music both current and past in a classic 60s style. Rod performs regularly in Vail and has traveled extensively performing for private and corporate events. With an easy-to-love style and as an audience-loving performer, Rod’s performance is sure to be both incredible and memorable. Tickets are available at Kiawah Island Town Hall beginning April 1, 2010 (March 29 for Kiawah residents).
Lee Chin Siow & Enrique Graf present “Songs My Father Taught Me”
Sunday April 18: 4pm at Church of Our Saviour
Critically acclaimed violinist Lee Chin Siow and pianist Enrique Graf will perform works from Siow’s album, “Songs My Father Taught Me.” The recital will showcase signature works from Lee Chin’s debut album such as William Grant Still’s jazzy Gamin, Amy Beach’s lyrical Romance, and Wieniawski’s virtuosic Polonaise Brillante, as well as Beethoven’s Sonata in D major for violin and piano. In a sold-out gala concert in Singapore’s Esplanade Concert Hall, violinist Lee Chin Siow launched her debut album. This will be a night of superb, exquisite music performed by two world class musicians. Tickets are available at Kiawah Island Town Hall beginning April 1, 2010 (March 29 for Kiawah residents).
