    Guest Artist Series: Read Gainsford, piano

    Where
    Converse College, Daniel Recital Hall, 580 East Main Street, Spartanburg, SC 29302 [ Map ]
    Description
    Known for his insightful introductions from the stage, reaching beyond the footlights to be what a magazine profile described as "Pianist of the People" he pursues connections wherever he can find them. From collaborating with noted oceanographers in presenting "Voice of the Whale" by George Crumb, to consulting with art historians and living artists to create a series of images to accompany performances of Messiaen's Vingt regards sur l'Enfant-Jésus; from historical reenactments of the famous piano duel between Franz Liszt and Sigismond Thalberg of 1837, to playing Stravinsky's Rite of Spring for live performance by a noted dance troupe, he is committed to reaching audiences in ways beyond the traditional.

    Born in New Zealand, he studied at the University of Auckland with New Zealand's leading teachers, Janetta McStay and Bryan Sayer, before moving to London to work at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama as a pupil of the renowned pedagogue Joan Havill. He moved to the USA to earn a doctorate from Indiana University, under professor Karen Shaw. He has performed widely in the USA, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, as solo recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician, making successful solo debuts in Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall and London's Wigmore Hall, as well as playing in the Kennedy Center, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Queen Elizabeth Hall, and others.

    Harriet Tubman, Chautauqua History Alive Talk, FREE

    Where
    Hughes Main Library, 25 Heritage Green PL, Greenville, SC 29601 [ Map ]
    Description
    Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss Harriet Tubman – with Duff Bruce, founding Greenville Chautauqua Board Member and former owner of The Open Book.

    Harriet Tubman is best known for escaping slavery and helping others to do the same along the famed Underground Railroad. But no single act in Tubman's life would free more people than the Combahee River Raid, right here in South Carolina.

    What kind of courage does it take for a fugitive slave to return to the South to serve the Union army without pay – nurse the wounded – sneak into Confederate South Carolina to spy and recruit slaves – and ultimately lead soldiers with Col James Montgomery to raid rice plantations along the Combahee River in South Carolina freeing 700 or more slaves? – Let's talk about it.

    This event is NOT a costumed performance. Harriet Tubman will be performed by Becky Stone in the Chautauqua History Alive Festival June 15 -24.
