Concert set at Seaside UMC
The Carolina Master Chorale, directed by Dr. Timothy Koch, will present its gala season opening concert program, “Ain’t It a Pretty Night…at the Opera,” at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22, at Seaside United Methodist Church in Sunset Beach.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
The program features a wide variety of history’s most popular and recognizable music from the opera stage by European composers Verdi, Wagner, Bizet and Mascagni and American composers Barber, Copland and Argento. The CMC will also present a special tribute to Carlisle Floyd, America’s premiere opera composer, who was born and raised in nearby Latta, S.C.
Now in their 11th year with the CMC, music director Koch and pianist and composer in-residence Dr. Andrew Fowler have helped establish the Carolina Master Chorale as one of the premiere regional choruses in the Southeast. The 80-voice CMC roster features a large contingent of professional musicians, including numerous faculty members from Coastal Carolina University, as well as a talented base of well-trained and enthusiastic amateur singers.
According to Michael Orland, internationally renowned music director of the “American Idol” television show, “My friends and I are still talking about how blown away we were by that concert we saw. The chorale sounded amazing.”
