The Third Sunday at 3:00 concert series will present Patricia Hannemann and Patrick Boyle in an afternoon of duo piano repertoire concert on Sunday.
The series, which is organized by Tom Bailey, music director, is held at St. Theresa the Little Flower Catholic Church at 11001 Dorchester Road in Summerville. All concerts are free of charge and begin at 3 p.m..
Playing duo piano requires the pianists to think as one in executing precision, blending, and anticipation, thus creating a chamber music experience for the audience.
For this performance, their repertoire will be a combination of classical and popular music, including composers of Victor Babin, Cecile Chaminade, Arthur Benjamin, William Bolcom, Anton Arensky and others. A seldom heard piece of Cecile Chaminade, a French female composer, showcases sensitivity, taste and charm in two piano compositions. For rhythmic pleasures that will keep you moving there is the Arthur Benjamin piece which is based on Jamaican folk songs and the dramatic La Danseuse from Anton Arensky’s Silhouetten.
