Two Columbia County music groups presenting concerts

Posted: March 21, 2012 - 12:01am

Two Columbia County music groups are each bringing a concert to the Augusta area in coming weeks.

The first is a recital by the Columbia County Orchestra Association on Saturday at its office inside University Healthcare’s building three on the Evans campus at 465 North Belair Road.

The Columbia Winds concert features local musicians Taylor Massey, clarinet; Kelly O’Dell, oboist; Cynthia Hopkins, flutist; Feleighta Green, bassoonist; and John Glaeser, French horn player.

“People who have been around the classical music scene in Augusta will know some of these players,” said the orchestra’s music director, Rob Nordan. The concert starts at 6 p.m. Concessions will be available.

Nordan said the selections chosen for the concert are a mixture of classical music and pieces from the late 20th century.

“Some of the music is going to be a little more modern than regular classical music,” he said.

The Columbia County Choral Society will present a March 30 concert at Woodlawn United Methodist Church, 2220 Walton Way, Augusta. Choral Society Artistic Director Timothy Powell will lead the group of vocalists as they present John Rutter’s Requiem.

The concert, beginning at 7:30 p.m., is part of the church’s Christian arts series, called Sacred Sound, Sacred Space.

Georgia Southern University Choral Director Shannon Jeffries is the featured soprano soloist.
