in Arts by

As part of the continuing celebration of its Tricentennial year, the Parish Church of St. Helena will host a concert by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, March 10 beginning at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary at St. Helena’s.
According to Pat Gould, Music director and organist for St. Helena’s, and the Standing Committee Chairperson for the Tricentennial’s overall special music program, the symphony will play an exciting program featuring music from those three centuries. “The orchestra will play works of Handel, Holst and Mozart, as well as Elizabethan Consort Music for brass and timpani,” Gould said.
Because of generous donations from parishioners and the community, the church is pleased to offer the concert at only $10 per ticket for adults, and Free to students 18 and under. “Tickets are going fast,” Gould said, “and everyone must have one, even those that are free to students.”  Reserved sponsorship seating is available but other seats are on a first come basis.
Gould said she is overjoyed that the church is able to provide an orchestra of this caliber to the community, and to expose symphonic music to families who might not otherwise be able to hear an orchestra, and to that end, the church is providing a nursery, also at no charge.
Those wanting to take advantage of the nursery must make reservations.
The Parish Church of St. Helena is located at 505 Church Street, Beaufort.  For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the church office at 843-522-1712 or visit www.sthelenas1712.org.  For information on sponsorship packages, contact janspringle@earthlink.net.
