‘Miss Judy’ tickets available for USCB Chamber Music Festival

in Letters to Editor/Voices by

I am pleased to once again remind you of a special arrangement the university set up after my receiving a beautifully penned letter from an elderly Beaufortonian who simply signed the letter Miss Judy.  She expressed her love of classical music and her regret that the rising cost of living made it impossible for her to hear the wonderful musicians that the USCB Chamber Music Festival brings to Beaufort.

One of the primary motivations of the university and our generous donors in supporting these concerts is to give people of all ages and circumstances the opportunity to hear the music of the masters played by exceptional artists.  For several seasons we have made free tickets available to high school music students, USCB music appreciation students, and members of the Beaufort Youth Orchestra.  We also have Miss Judy tickets available on a first-come basis. Please tell the attendant that you would like a Miss Judy ticket, and make a donation to the series only if you wish.

I hope the student tickets and Miss Judy’s initiative will fill our hall with people who truly love the artistry and music that this extraordinary series brings to our region. All concerts are at the USCB Center for the Arts on Carteret Street at 5 p.m. on the following Sundays: November 2, December 14, February 8, March 8 and April 26.
