For more information or to order tickets, call Sarah Spigner at 864.596.9193. Performances will include:
• Sept. 27—The Tempest Trio
Three internationally renowned virtuosos make up the Tempest: Alon Goldstein, piano, Ilya Kaler, violin, and Amit Peled, cello. Kaler was the Gold Medal winner at the Tchaikowsky Competition in Moscow, the Sibelius Competition in Finland, and the Paganini Competition in Genoa — the only violinist ever to win the Gold Medal in all three of those international competitions.
• Nov. 15—REBEL
A Baroque chamber ensemble. No powdered wigs for these folks: they’re dazzling players who will offer brilliant and buoyant performances.
• Feb. 21—Cavani String Quartet
The wonderful and widely-traveled Cavani String Quartet won the hearts of Moseley audiences three years ago with the warmth and passion of their playing.
• April 4—Tharanga Goonetilleke with pianist Nathan Brandwein
The Petrie School of Music’s very own golden-voiced Tharanga Goonetilleke, fresh from her debut as a member of the New York City Opera company, will return to Spartanburg with pianist Nathan Brandwein.
In 1983, a group of devoted faculty, administrators, and community supporters gathered to form the Friends of the School of Music. Over the years the Friends have presented such eminent performers as Yo-Yo Ma, Charles Wadsworth, the Tokyo String Quartet, the Beaux Arts Trio, and many others. In 2004, the Friends of the Petrie School of Music renamed the series the Carlos Moseley Chamber Music Series in honor of Spartanburg native Carlos Dupre Moseley, who was named Chairman Emeritus of the of the Board of the New York Philharmonic in 1985.
