Additional Menu

Hartsville, S.C. – April 4, 2016 – The Coker College Concert Band will perform a “Musical Mix-Up” on Monday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the campus’s Music Recital Hall. The event is open to the public and admission is free.

The performance will include soloists, small ensembles and the Jazz Band, and will offer a variety of music from Mozart to contemporary jazz. The event will also include local guest artist Al Haynes on the piano and the After Dark Jazz Quartet.

"When we were directing bands in public schools, our favorite event of the year was the Solo and Ensemble Festival because the format allows individual musicians to concentrate on music of their choice and stretch their musical wings,” said Penny and Steve Rogers, Directors of the Coker College Concert Band. “The Musical Mix-Up is our Coker College version of that type of event. Magical things happen when the musicians select and prepare the style of music that they are personally passionate about, and we hope everyone will come out and enjoy the experience along with us!"  

The Coker College Concert Band is a true community ensemble made up of Coker students, area high school students, music teachers and Hartsville community members.
