Classical Concert Series Opens With Feghali
In celebration of 29 years of the Classical Concert Series (CCS) presenting some of the world's best musicians, the Arts Council of Moore County will open the 2010-2011 season with Van Cliburn-winning pianist Jose Feghali Monday, Oct. 4, at 8 p.m. at the Sunrise Theater in Southern Pines.
Subscription seats for the four-concert series are still available for only $80 per person for all four concerts for Arts Council members ($90 for nonmembers). Individual tickets may be available from subscribers who return their tickets if they are unable to attend a concert. For ticket availability, visit the Arts Council of Moore County offices at Campbell House (482 E. Connecticut Ave., Southern Pines) or call (910) 692-2787.
Winner of the Gold Medal at the prestigious seventh Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Feghali has since been a major presence on the concert stage worldwide. A child prodigy in his native Brazil, he made his recital debut at the age of 5 and concerto debut three years later with the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra.
Highlights of Feghali's career include recitals on the most prestigious stages in the world, such as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and Chicago's Orchestra Hall; concerts with the world's best orchestras, such as London Symphony, Berlin Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony; and chamber music collaborations with some of the most renowned artists, such as James Galway and Andre Watts.
The remaining concerts in the series include string sextet Concertante on Monday, Nov. 8; clarinetist Jose Franch-Ballester on Monday, Feb. 14; and violinist Alina Ibragimova on Monday, March 14.
In addition to the concerts, The Jefferson Inn is offering a pre-concert dinner in their restaurant, One Fifty West, located less than a block from the Sunrise Theater at 150 W. New Hampshire Ave.
For $38 per person (tax and gratuity included), you will receive a delicious meal," says a spokesman.
Dinner reservations can only be made by calling the Arts Council.
