Composer Meira Warshauer to perform

March 25, 2009

Composer Meira Warshauer will share stories of her life in music at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 31 in the Recital Hall of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts at Coastal Carolina University. The event is free and open to the public.

Warshauer is currently the Nancy A. Smith Distinguished Visitor in Residence at the University. Her presentation will feature live and recorded examples of her compositions for orchestra, chorus and chamber ensembles. Warshauer has devoted much of her creative output to Jewish themes and their universal message. Her work also reflects a love and respect for the earth.

Warshauer's works, which mirror her personal spiritual journey, have been performed and recorded in Israel, Europe, South America, Asia and the United States.

Warshauer has been awarded the Artist Fellowship in Music by the South Carolina Arts Commission twice, as well as the first Art and Cultural Achievement Award from the Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina. She earned a bachelor's degree from Harvard University, a master's degree from the New England Conservatory of Music and a D.M.A. from the University of South Carolina.

This Women's History Month event is sponsored by the Women's and Gender Studies Program at Coastal Carolina University. For more information, contact Maria K. Bachman at 843-349-2747 or
