WCU chancellor, first lady and friends to perform

Written by 

art belchersWestern Carolina University’s first couple will team up with other WCU performers, including recent Tony Award-nominated Broadway star Terrence Mann, for “Belchers and Friends,” an evening of music and dance at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at WCU.

 

Chancellor David O. Belcher, a classically trained concert pianist, will perform George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with an ensemble of student and faculty musicians, and wife Susan Brummell Belcher, a professional opera singer and vocal teacher, will offer a selection of classics and songs from stage and screen.

The evening will feature performances by Mann, who holds WCU’s Phillips Distinguished Professorship in Musical Theatre; William Martin, associate professor of music; and Terry Welch, assistant to the chancellor and a familiar figure on the local theater scene.

The concert is free, but tickets are required for admission.
