Free clarinet, piano concert at WCU

Western Carolina University’s School of Music will present a free concert featuring clarinet and piano with performances of 20th-century masterworks at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, in the recital hall of the Coulter Building on the WCU campus.

The concert will include selections by composers including Leonard Bernstein, Robert Muczynski and Astor Piazzolla.

Playing clarinet is Shannon Thompson, a WCU music professor and member of both the Asheville and Hendersonville symphony orchestras. She has performed throughout the U.S. as a recitalist and chamber musician. Joining her on piano is Lillian Buss Pearson, a WCU music faculty member with solo orchestral appearances with the Jacksonville Symphony, Asheville Symphony, Breckenridge Festival Orchestra and Brandenburg Ensemble.

For more information about the performance, call the WCU School of Music at 828.227.7242.

 

Bryson City community jam

A community music jam will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, at the Marianna Black Library in Bryson City.

Anyone with a guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dulcimer, anything unplugged, are invited to join. Singers are also welcomed to join in or you can just stop by and listen. The jam is facilitated by Larry Barnett of Grampa’s Music in Bryson City.

The community jams offer a chance for musicians of all ages and levels of ability to share music they have learned over the years or learn old-time mountain songs. The music jams are offered to the public each first and third Thursday of the month — year-round. This program received support from the North Carolina Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of North Carolina and the National Endowment of the Arts.
