Lowcountry Heritage Society in Charleston, SC, Offers Musical & Visual Art Event

The Lowcountry Heritage Society in conjunction with the College of Charleston School of the Arts celebrates its tenth season with Tableau Xieme. This event, combining new musical compositions with visual art, will take place Oct. 17, 2003 at 8pm at the Simons Center's Recital Hall at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC. Tickets are $15 and available at Millenium Music. This provocative and interesting multimedia evening will be an artistic event to remember. Please join us and support the creation of new works of art inspired by the Lowcountry.

Composers Gordon (Dick) Goodwin, Trevor Weston and Edward Hart created new works for this event to be played by a piano, cello and violin trio. Goodwin is distinguished professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina and a recipient of the 2001 Elizabeth O'Neill Verner Individual Artist Award. He remains an active composer, performer and conductor in both the classical and jazz worlds.

Trevor Weston is assistant professor of music at the College of Charleston and his honors include the George Ladd Prix de Paris, which funded two years of study in Paris, and a reading by the Detroit Symphony in 1998 of his orchestral piece Bleue. Recently, Dr. Weston completed a fellowship at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and was awarded the prestigious Goddard Lieberson "mid career composer of exceptional gifts" fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Edward Hart's music has been widely performed including a 1995 performance at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. In 1998 Hart won the South Carolina Music Teachers Association prize in composition. His A Tidal Concerto for piano and orchestra was performed by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonica de Montevideo (Uruguay) in June 2003. Hart has recently been commissioned to write a guitar concerto for guitarist Roberto Limon and the Orquesta De Baja California (Tijuana, Mexico). Hart is also a professor at the College of Charleston.

Musicians for the event are Winifred Goodwin (piano), Robert Jesselson (cello) and William Terwilliger (violin).

Visual artists creating paintings to complement the music are Linda Fantuzzo, Karen Larson Turner, Dixie Dugan, Arn Strasser, Susan Colwell and Lese Corrigan.

The Lowcountry Heritage Society is dedicated to the production of new works of art, music, and literature about or inspired by the South Carolina Lowcountry. Since its inception in 1994, the group has produced over fifty new musical works by thirteen composers, two modern dance works, a ballet, two literary anthologies, an original play and thirteen art exhibits.
