The Summer Concert Series, hosted by Graves Memorial Presbyterian Church, is getting ready to present its second installment. Ian Parker and Friends will be performing the music of Bach, Brahms, & Beethoven.
Parker, organist, will be joined by Lara Capparuccia, piano and organ, and Robert Nosow, cello. A Sampson County native, Parker is always excited to show off his skills at the organ. His debut concert was in 2012, and since then he has performed annual recitals. He is enrolled at the Academy of Continuing Education at Sampson Community College.
Capparuccia is co-director of music and organist at Graves Memorial. She performs on numerous instruments and in various styles. She has performed extensively across the state.
Nosow, a professor of cello, is a published author and composer. He is also internationally known as a music historian. A monograph, Ritual Meanings in the Fifteenth-Century Motet, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2012. The final concert in GMPC summer series will feature his original music.
Following the first concert in the series featuring the music of opera and oratorio, this one is expected to continue the tradition of fine music in Clinton. The concert will be Sunday, July 8, at 4 p.m.
Graves Memorial Presbyterian Church is located at 201 Fayetteville St. next to the Sampson Community Theatre. This concert is free and open to the public, although donations will be gratefully accepted.
