Concert: 4th Annual World Masterwork Series

September 3, 2016 @ 7 pm

Event-World Masterworks-PosterThe “Greatest Show On Earth” is coming to Asheville’s Diana Wortham Theatre, September 3 at 7 p.m.

The 4th Annual World Masterwork Series – A spectacular two-piano fantasy!

Proceeds benefit Ladies Night Out.

The evening begins with two young pianistic stars, Christopher Tavernier & Nolan Anthony, playing your favorite piano solos by some of the greatest composers of all time. Then let your imagination soar with Camille Saint-Saëns’ charming Carnival of the Animals. The story follows the dream of a boy, asleep in the American Museum of Natural History. Wild and strange creatures emerge, and hilarious antics ensue. Quite a show it will be: fourteen entertaining pieces played by two pianos with an assortment of string, woodwind and percussion instruments, performed by the Masterwork Chamber Players.

Also featured is a narration of the humorous verses by Ogden Nash and Bruce Adolphe, narrated by Ron Whittemore and it will certainly bring down the house, Camille Saint-Saëns’ Charming Carnival of the Animals.

100% of all the ticket proceeds from the 4th Annual World Masterwork are paid directly to the “Ladies Night Out” program. “Ladies Night Out” is a community program of Mission Foundation providing free mammograms and health screenings to uninsured and underinsured women.
