    Description
    SPARTANBURG, SC Chapman Cultural Center in downtown Spartanburg provides casual and cultural entertainment every Sunday for the public's enjoyment. The Center's Sundays Unplugged program features free admission to the art galleries and history museum, 1-5 p.m., and a free singer-songwriter concert by a regional musician, 2-4 p.m. This Sunday, July 5, alternative and colonial Gothic artist Neil Lee Griffin performs. Chapman Cultural Center will be closed Friday and Saturday, July 3 and 4, for the Independence Day holiday weekend.

    Growing up in the Upstate, Griffin faced adversity due to his stutter. Struggling to even say his own name, other children teased him relentlessly. However, growing up with a piano and guitar, Griffin found comfort in music, discovering that his stutter disappeared when he sang. Now, under the nickname Scarecrow (South Carolina Association for Raising Education Concerning Restrictive Oratory Walls), he helps others with a stutter find similar comfort through his talent. Though he mainly performs in the colonial gothic genre, he dabbles in jazz, metal, world music, and others. Griffin's personal style is dark folk that tells stories. He also writes scores for film and television.

    Griffin's concert will be complemented by free admission to Artists' Guild of Spartanburg, Spartanburg Art Museum, and Spartanburg Regional History Museum. Spartanburg Science Center will be open for a small fee.

    3Bs Concert
    Three Pianos To Recreate the Baroque Sound

    In a rare and daring concert that will faithfully recreate the music of the Baroque period, regional musicians will perform two works by J.S. Bach that he wrote for three keyboards. The "3Bs" concert will feature pianists Jessie Davis, Christopher Tavernier, and Vance Reese accompanied by the Hendersonville Symphony Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of Conductor Thomas Joiner. The concert set for Saturday, Sept. 2, at 7 p.m. will be performed at the Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville.
    "For many people this will be a once in a lifetime opportunity," Joiner said. "It is very rare to hear these three-piano concertos live. It is even more rare to hear them played on custom-made pianos tuned as pianos were tuned during the Baroque and Classical periods. It can be a very different sound from what we are accustomed to hearing in today's concert halls. Concertgoers will hear this music as it was originally intended to be heard. This will be very important concert on a global scale."
    Two of Bach's works — Concerto in D minor, BWV 1063 and Concerto in C major, BWV 1064 — will be performed during the evening. They are part of a seven-concerto work originally written for the harpsichord, employing a single, two, three, and even four harpsichords, along with chamber accompaniment. The harpsichord was the keyboard instrument of the era, as the modern-day piano had yet to be invented. Music scholars believe these are among the first concertos for a keyboard instrument ever written.
    The concert's prelude will feature the Hendersonville Symphony Chamber Orchestra performing selections from Johannes Brahms's "Hungarian Dances," which is a set of 21 lively dance tunes based mostly on Hungarian themes, completed in 1869. They vary from about a minute to five minutes in length and are among Brahms's most popular works. It will be followed by Bach's "Concerto for 3 Pianos in D Minor."
    Starting the second half of the evening, 16-year-old pianist Christopher Tavernier of Hendersonville will perform Ludwig van Beethoven's "Piano Sonata No. 21 in C major, Op.53," known as the "Waldstein." Completed in 1804, this sonata surpasses Beethoven's previous piano sonatas in its scope and sets a standard for piano composition in the grand manner. Dedicated to Beethoven's close friend and patron Count Ferdinand Ernst Gabriel von Waldstein of Vienna, it is one of Beethoven's greatest and most technically challenging piano sonatas. The first section of the Rondo requires a simultaneous pedal trill, high melody and rapid left-hand runs, while its coda's glissando octaves, written in dialogue between the hands, compel even advanced performers to play in a simplified version since it is more demanding to play on the heavier action of a modern piano than on an early 19th-century instrument.
    The program will close with Bach's "Concerto for 3 Pianos in C Major."
    "This concert event will be a rare opportunity to hear two of Bach's 3-piano concerti, performed by outstanding pianists including young Christopher Tavernier, who at 16 is making quite an impact in the artistic community," Pat Tukey, Executive Director of the Hendersonville Symphony Orchestra, said. "The Hendersonville Symphony Orchestra is doubly pleased at being asked to provide a 20-member chamber ensemble, under the direction of Thomas Joiner, to perform with the pianists and to also be the beneficiary of proceeds from this concert's ticket sales. We greatly appreciate the support of the Music Foundation of WNC in helping us all to advance the opportunities for live music performances throughout the area."
    This 3Bs concert, which stands for Bach, Brahms, and Beethoven, is a partnership celebration of the musical talent in Hendersonville and the surrounding area, said Joann Freeburg, Founder of the Music Foundation of Western North Carolina. It is the non-profit's Fifth Annual World Masterwork Series Benefit Concert, supporting the Hendersonville Symphony Orchestra. "On behalf of the Music Foundation of Western North Carolina, we are certainly supportive of all music in this region. We believe music is one of the greatest assets of Western North Carolina, and the Hendersonville Symphony Orchestra is a leader in this community, providing world-class performances and contributing to the music education of our young people. The Hendersonville Symphony Orchestra is well respected by its peers and the community, and the Foundation is here to help anyway it can. By supporting the Hendersonville Symphony Orchestra, we are all ensuring that quality musical performances and education will continue, greatly enhancing the quality of life for everyone.
    "We were looking for something extra special, something unusual, something that would excite not just classical music lovers but music lovers in general," Freeburg, said. "Through many conversations with leading musicians and some very in-the-know citizens, we realized we had the materials for a concert that would feature three pianos at the same time. Understand, this music was written by Bach during the Baroque period, and it was considered then -- and now -- to be rare, extraordinary, and technically challenging. This community has a track record of enjoying Baroque music, and plus, we have some of the most talented pianists in the world right here. Further, we had access to some of the finest pianos in the world that would be tuned in accordance to the standards that the music was written for. Having Perzina pianos on-board and the tuning expertise of Keith Freeburg gave us all that much more confidence. We knew it would be a daunting task on many levels to pull off such a concert, but everyone we consulted had the confidence in the musical talent to make it happen. We are stepping up to the plate to do something that is very seldomly done anywhere in the world."
    Adding to the uniqueness of the occasion, Freeburg Pianos in Hendersonville will provide three limited-special-edition and matching Perzina Grand Pianos that will be manufactured and imported from Amsterdam. These instruments will allow for the re-creation of music composed in the Baroque and Classical periods as it was originally intended to be performed and heard. These pianos will be tuned to the "Equal-Beating Victorian Temperament," a tuning method that was preferred in Europe during the 1800s and by many classical performers today. The resulting sound to both the trained and untrained ear is often described as "more vibrant" than standard tuning used most commonly today.
    North Carolina-native Jesse Davis, 40, performs with a bravura and technical mastery that brings audiences to their feet around the world. As a soloist, he appears with orchestras and gives numerous recitals in the United States and Europe. He is the winner of the 2001 Vienna International Pianists Academy, the 1998 Greensboro Music Teachers Association, the 1995 NCSA "A. J. Fletcher Competition," the 1995 Raleigh Symphony Concerto Competition, the 1995 N.C. MTNA Competition, and 1993 Tar River Symphony Concerto Competition. He won 3rd Prize at the First International Piano Competition Sant'Agata Li Battiati, Italy and a Semifinalist Prize at the 2004 New Orleans International Piano Competition and the Concert Artist Guild in New York.
    Davis has concertized with top-tier orchestras, including the Dnipropetrovs'k Philharmonic Orchestra, Kiev Symphony, Berlin RIAS Youth Symphony, Salisbury Symphony, Craiova Orchestra de Opera of Romania, Raleigh Symphony, Fayetteville Symphony and televised "live" with Lugansk State Philharmonic Orchestra. He debuted with the Tar River Philharmonic at age sixteen and has performed the Mozart Triple Piano Concerto with his wife Leslie and the Snyder Symphony. Davis studied privately for several years with Maestro Fabio Bidini. He received the "International Certificate for Piano Artists 2003-2004" under instruction from Jerome Lowenthal, Boaz Sharon, Nelson Delle-Vigne, Philippe Entremont and Lazar Berman. He earned a MM degree from Baylor in the studio of Krassimira Jordan. Davis received a BM from UNCSA in 1999 as a student of Clif
