Chamber music performance at the Jackson County Public Library

Written by 

Members of the Western Carolina Civic Orchestra — conducted by William Henigbaum — will present a string chamber orchestra concert at 7 p.m. on Aug. 21 in the community room of the Jackson County Public Library. 

The string players of the orchestra include area residents who are amateur musicians, as well as local violin teachers and their students.

“We enjoy playing together and are glad to have an excuse to practice in the summer,” said orchestra member Kathy Arps.

The program at the library will include some favorites from Bach and Mozart, as well as music for the young at heart, like a fiddle tune medley titled “Bluegrass Country.” The orchestra will also play one movement from the Simple Symphony by Benjamin Britten, who composed the melodies when he was 10 and 12 years old and orchestrated them for strings by his early twenties. The program will conclude with dance movements from the “Capriol Suite” by Peter Warlock.

This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library.

For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
