Come hear music of Frederick the Great

"Music at the Court of Frederick the Great" will be featured in a flute concert at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 24 at Coastal Carolina University. The concert is free and open to the public.

Amy Hardison Tully, a music professor at Coastal, will be the flutist; other musicians on the program include Gary Stegall, Coastal music professor, on harpsichord and piano; Erin Althoff on violin; and Tamar Ben-Pazi on cello. The recital will be in the Recital Hall of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.

Frederick II of Prussia (1712-1786) was known as a military genius, a learned man, a philosopher and flutist. He was patron to some of the finest musicians and composers in Europe, and his support of musicians led to important advancements in the development of the flute and cultivation of pre-classical styles that influenced Haydn and Mozart.

Tully holds music degrees from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and from Northwestern University. She is a member of the Long Bay Symphony and a freelance performer throughout the Grand Strand. Her past performances have included the Wilmington Sea Flutes, Wilmington Symphony Orchestra, Opera House Theatre Company in Wilmington and the Northwestern Early Music Ensemble.

She is a member of the chamber groups Strand Strings and Tidelands Trio. At Coastal, Tully teaches the flute studio course, music history and appreciation. She also directs the Coastal Consort, a new student recorder ensemble.
