‘Okay, we’ll have two pianos!’

Published 8:32 pm Tuesday, April 17, 2012


Community Chorus director Mark Schweizer tries to appease two favorite local pianists, Beth Child (left) and Pam McNeil, by promising to bring two Steinway grand pianos on stage when the chorus presents its spring concert Sunday, May 6 at 3 p.m. at the Polk County High School auditorium. The two pianists will share the keyboards on “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff during the concert. The stage will also host the North Greenville University percussion ensemble, two soloists and upwards of 100 singers. In addition to “Carmina Burana,” Schweizer will direct Alfred Fedak’s “Gift of Music” and some favorite spirituals. The concert benefits the Rotary Club of Tryon Scholarship Fund.
