Music Carolina Summerfest will include Appalachia-themed
Pianist composer Kenneth Frazelle and soprano Jodi Burns will perform an evening of Frazelle’s Appalachia-inspired music 7:30 p.m. Aug.1 as part of Music Carolina Summerfest, Shirley Recital Hall, at Salem College.
For more than 30 years, Frazelle has explored the landscape and soundscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains through his compositions. He will perform selections from “Wildflowers and Lullabies” and “Bird Songs,” for solo piano, and will be joined by Burns in selections from Appalachian Songbooks I and II and “Songs in the Rearview Mirror.”
Of her recent leading role in Piedmont Opera’s production of “Silent Night,” The Winston-Salem Journal noted, “Burns dazzled with her lustrous soprano and bright charisma.” She sings frequently with the Winston-Salem Symphony and North Carolina Symphony, and performs her own compositions with her band, Judy Barnes.
Tickets are $24, and student tickets are $8. For information visit musiccarolina.org/summerfest-2018.
