    "Eleanor Roosevelt, the Power of Words" – Free ChautauquaShows

    Where
    Wade Hampton HS Auditorium, 100 Pine Knoll Dr, Greenville, SC 29609 [ Map ]
    Description
    Nationally acclaimed historical interpreter Susan Marie Frontczak creates a compelling portrayal that reveals Eleanor Roosevelt not only as a relentless voice for the powerless, but also as a savvy user of mass media – magazine and news columns – 17 books – 1400 speeches – newsreels (inside and outside of the White House) and 358 press conferences. Hear her speak for herself as she transforms the role of First Lady to become one of the most revered women of her generation.

    You'll laugh – you'll be challenged – you'll have lots of questions. And as always at Chautauqua, the audience is part of the show. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it's not just history – it's personal.

    Taking their name from Mendelssohn's oratorio Elijah, THE ELIAS STRING QUARTET is internationally acclaimed as one of the leading ensembles of their generation. Known for their intense and vibrant performances, the quartet has traveled the globe collaborating with some of the finest musicians and playing in the world's great halls. They formed at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester where they worked closely with the late Dr. Christopher Rowland and later became Junior Fellows and Associate Quartet. The Quartet is steadily building a recording catalogue that has been met with widespread critical acclaim.

    About the Friends of the Petrie School of Music

    In 1983, a group of devoted faculty, administrators and community supporters formed the Friends of the School of Music. Among them was Carlos Moseley, whose world-wide musical connections helped establish Converse College as a venue for such eminent performers as Charles Wadsworth and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Yo-Yo Ma, Chanticleer, the Tokyo String Quartet, the Beaux Arts Trio and many others. In 2004, the Friends of the Petrie School of Music renamed our concert series the Carlos Moseley Chamber Music Series.

    For decades the name Carlos Moseley has been synonymous with musical excellence. This great musician was revered for his contributions to music not only in his hometown of Spartanburg, but also around the world. Carlos enjoyed a distinguished career as a concert pianist, professor, and as president of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and Chairman of the Philharmonic-Symphony Society of New York. He served on the boards of Converse College and Brevard Music Center, and was awarded honorary doctoral degrees from the Juilliard School, Duke University, Wofford College and Converse College. He was also a recipient of the Order of the Palmetto, the highest honor available to a citizen of South Carolina. Most recently, Mr. Moseley was honored with a marker on the Spartanburg Music Trail.

    Subscriptions to the Moseley series and additional donations to the Friends of the Petrie School of Music provide support for Converse music students and make possible an array of education activities by Moseley Series artists. These activities include master classes and open rehearsals at Converse, as well as programs at local high schools.
