Keys for the Cure!
Join us for an extraordinary musical performance benefiting Relay for Life, Friday, May 8, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. Five majestic ebony grand pianos, provided by Jamestown Piano Shop, will be played by ten talented locals at Wesley United Methodist Church on St. Simons Island. At each piano will be four hands and twenty fingers moving across the keys. This studied choreography is as spellbinding as the music.
The ten accomplished, local pianists are bound by more than their love of music. Five (one at each piano) are cancer survivors and all ten have been touched in some way by the disease. The evening’s skilled performers will be: Amy Bishop, David Crawford, Ann Dempsey, Beverly Fetter, Rhonda Hambright, Michele Jamieson, Donna Nilsson, Ann Nermoe, Diedra Singleton, and Claudia Theise.
Many of the world’s greatest composers have written wondrous original works for “one piano, four hands.” This evening’s performance will span styles from the 17th century to the present, including classical, popular, sacred and other selections.
100% of the ticket proceeds will go to Relay for Life and our community’s fight against cancer. General Admission is $25, Student Admission is $10, and Patron Tickets are $50. Patron tickets include reserved seating and a gala meet-the-musicians reception at Halyard’s Restaurant following the performance. Seating is limited to 500, so please secure your tickets well in advance. Tickets can be purchased via the web, here.
