Music Foundation of WNC Presents Free Concerts to Benefit Hendersonville Community Theatre @ Hendersonville Community Theatre
Jan 14 @ 4:00 pm

The Music Foundation of Western North Carolina will present three free concerts this month to benefit the Hendersonville Community Theatre. The “2nd Annual Benefit Concert Series” will be Jan. 14 (classical piano solos), Jan. 15 (classical piano and clarinet), and Jan. 27 (classical/jazz). Each is free and will be held at the theater, 229 S. Washington Street in Hendersonville.

Christopher Tavernier, a 16-year-old concert pianist and native of Hendersonville, will be the featured performer for two back-to-back coffee-themed performances.

The first concert, “A Rich Blend of Piano Solo Classics,” will be Saturday, Jan. 14, at 4 p.m. and will feature some of the most noted and popular classical piano solos from the Baroque, Romantic, and Modern periods, including J.S. Bach’s “Prelude and Fugue in F minor, BWV 881;” Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Sonata in C Major, Op. 53 Waldstein;” Frederic Chopin’s “Nocturne in C minor, Op. 48, No. 1;” Franz Liszt’s “Saint Francis of Paola Walking on the Waves;” and Sergei Prokofiev’s “Sonata No. 7 in B flat Major, Op. 83.”
The second concert, “Cappuccino: A Rich Swiss Blend of Clarinet & Piano,” will be Sunday, Jan. 15, at 4 p.m. Tavernier and local clarinetist Matthew Hanna will perform both solos and duets, the most noted being the modern classic “Sonata for Clarinet in B-flat and Piano” by the late French composer Francis Jean Marcel Poulenc, who wrote the piece in honor of his friend Swiss composer Arthur Honegger in 1962.
Also on the program are several other selections, both solos and duets. The solos will include three clarinet pieces by Igor Stravinsky, “Fantasie” by Jorg Widmann, and “Rhapsody for Clarinet” by Willson Osborne. The piano solos will be Sergei Prokofiev’s “Sonata No. 7 in B flat Major, Op. 83” and Claude Debussy’s “Reflections in the Water.” And the duets will be four short pieces by Howard Ferguson, and Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise for Clarinet and Piano Op. 34 No. 14.”

 

The third and final concert, “New Orleans Baroque,” in the series will be Friday, Jan. 27, at 7 p.m. Performing will be Rita Hayes on flute, Karen Sams on piano, Keith Freeburg on double bass, and Morgen Cobb on drums. The ensemble will perform Claude Bolling’s “Suite No. 2 for Flute and Jazz Trio,” which consists of eight pieces that offer a heady mix of American jazz and French classical. This crossover composition was written in 1973, and its recording in 1975 was nominated for a Grammy Award. It paved the way for “Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio No. 2” in 1986.
