Piano in the Arts brings trumpet, piano duo to Armstrong Campus
Georgia Southern University’s Piano in the Arts will present “Music of the Americas,” by Duo Trompiano, featuring trumpeter Douglas Lindsey, D.M.A., and pianist Judy Cole. The concert will be Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Auditorium on the Armstrong Campus in Savannah.
“This program is exciting because it features music outside the conventional classical repertoire and expands into music of the western hemisphere, which is equally influential but performed less often,” said Eliza DeRienzo, music major and research assistant for Piano in the Arts.
Lindsey is currently first trumpet with the Premiere Bass and is a professor at Kennesaw State University (KSU). Cole, also a KSU professor, has been a successful freelance pianist for over 35 years and plays in the pit orchestra for Broadway touring shows at the Fox Theatre and major events at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center.
Piano in the Arts, now in its fifth season, is dedicated to showcasing the versatility of the piano by producing a series of unique concerts that incorporate various genres of music.
General admission is $15 and discounts are available for all military, seniors and children. Georgia Southern students, faculty and staff may attend for free.
