OPUS X Brings “Bright and Brilliant” Classical Concert to GMC May 3rd

OPUS X Brings “Bright and Brilliant” Classical Concert to GMC May 3rd Experience the sheer beauty of OPUS X at Georgia Military College this weekend, as four beguiling women—all world class classical solo artists—from four corners of the globe unite for a “musical journey into the unexpected.” Spend your Saturday evening at GMC enjoying Caroline Campbell on Violin, Tanja Zapolski on Piano, Lone Madsen on Clarinet and Kristina Reiko Cooper on Cello. Together, they’ve charmed audiences around the globe and are sure to delight their GMC audience, as well. For a sample of their music, visit http://opusxmusic.com/index.html. This “classical concert with an enchantingly modern twist” is dedicated to Louise Helton, a founding member of the GMC Steinway Committee, who passed away earlier this month. “Louise was a lover of life and a great supporter of the arts,” said her long-time friend and chair of the Steinway Committee, Mrs. Beegee Baugh. “She was 93 when she passed and jokingly attributed her longevity to ‘drinking Coca-Cola, never taking vitamins and refusing to exercise.’ Louise will be sorely missed, but well remembered during this wonderful concert dedicated to her memory.” Opus X is brought to you by the GMC Steinway Concert Series, Saturday, May 3 at 8pm in the Goldstein Center for the Performing Arts. General admission is $20 for adults and $10 for students with ID. For tickets, call 478-445-0202 or purchase at the door. Founding members of the GMC Steinway Committee are pictured (left to right): Polly Echols, Louise Helton, Dorrie Neligan, Ann Caldwell, and Beegee Baugh. Additional founding member was the late Rose Baugh Bacon. The Georgia Military Steinway Concert Series is designed to bring outstanding musical and artistic performances to GMC and the surrounding community.
