First Baptist Church of Georgetown is delighted to present The Piano Performance Team from Durham, N.C., in concert Sunday at 3 p.m.
The church is located at the corner of Highmarket and Cleland streets. The program is free musical program, but a love offering will be collected.
The Piano Performance team is made up of five North Carolina piano students from North Carolina selected by audition each year. It was created a few years ago to afford talented young artists various opportunities to perform as well as to provide a community outreach program in the arts.
The students play in recital collectively about twice a month in addition to their individual participation in competitions and workshops regularly.
The Piano Performance team has performed for colleges, schools, churches, concert halls, theaters, hospitals, restaurants, and retirement communities across the Southeast. Special events for which they have played include the Democratic Expo in Raleigh, The Palace Theater in Myrtle Beach, and a military concert for the troops and their families at JEB in Virginia.
This year’s team includes five students ages 11-18, three boys and two girls. Each team member travels with about eight memorized pieces. Their repertoire is varied enough that everyone in the audience is sure to have a favorite piece, even if they don’t recognize any of the titles.
Their team motto is: “Work hard and do your best.”
