Long Bay Symphony presents classical concert at Coastal

  Long Bay Symphony  
Long Bay Symphony will present a concert of "Baroque, Classical and Beyond" on Sunday, Nov. 14 at 3 p.m. in Wheelwright Auditorium at Coastal Carolina University. Tickets are $20 general admission, $5 students 18 and younger.

The orchestra, under direction of Charles Evans, will highlight the emergence of various styles of period music, including the rise of expression in the Baroque, the striving for balance and order in the Classical period, and the development of emotional intensity in the music of Beethoven and subsequent Romantic composers. The concert will include landmark works by Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann and Berlioz.

Featured soloists include Philip Powell, Patti Edwards and David Bankston, all members of the Coastal music faculty.

Powell, associate professor of music and chair of the Department of Performing Arts, has been a faculty member at CCU since 1988, teaching piano and piano pedagogy. He has performed with the South Carolina Symphony Orchestra, the Jupiter Symphony and is a frequent soloist with the Long Bay Symphony.

Bankston, associate professor of performing arts, has performed extensively in opera and musical theater, including leading roles in companies such as the Houston Grand Opera, Washington Opera and New Orleans Opera. He has recently been involved in setting up the Guitars in the Classroom project at Aynor Elementary that provides guitar education to students and teachers alike, and will conduct a teachers' guitar workshop this summer at CCU.

Edwards, a native of Georgetown, is director of the Coastal Carolina University Concert Choir. She has appeared with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, the Omaha Symphony and the Brevard and Transylvania Symphonies. Edwards has performed roles with the Charleston Opera Company, Opera Theater St. Louis, Opera Unlimited, Opera Omaha, The Texas Gilbert and Sullivan Company and at the Brevard and Batiquitos Festivals. She taught at Bemidji State University in Minnesota, Charleston Southern University, the College of Charleston, Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas, and was a doctoral teaching fellow at the University of North Texas.
