Tryon Concert Association announces its 2021-2022 season of outstanding live performances. This 67th season represents TCA’s commitment to bringing world class music home to Tryon and the return to the stage of musicians from around the world. TCA will present five subscription series concerts this season, a result of rescheduling due to the pandemic.

The Takács String Quartet will perform the opening concert on Thursday, October 21. These four musicians, originally scheduled to perform here last season, will play works by Franz Joseph Haydn, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and Ludwig van Beethoven. 

Marc-André Hamelin, whose original performance date was postponed due to the pandemic, will appear on Thursday, November 11, with a dynamic program of C.P.E. Bach, Sergei Prokofiev, Alexander Scriabin and Beethoven. Hamelin has performed works by a wide range of composers and has championed new music.
