Pianist Thomas Pandolfi returns to the Lowcountry

in Arts by

The South Carolina Lowcountry hides some remarkable artistic treasures hardly even guessed at beyond our coastal waters, salt marshes and maritime forests. Case in point: from October through March, you are invited to enjoy the Fripp Island Friends of Music’s annual concert series featuring world-class talent.

On October 18th, piano virtuoso Thomas Pandolfi will open the 32nd season of transforming the tiny Beaufort Barrier Island into an “Island of Music.” No stranger to the Fripp Friends of Music stage, Pandolfi is back by overwhelming demand by his clamoring, loyal Lowcountry fans.

Pandolfi isn’t merely a Julliard-honed, internationally renowned, prize-winning Steinway artist. With his amazing skill, audience-engaging showmanship and pure joyful energy, mere “world-class” seems a poverty-stricken description; “solar system class” or “universe-class” might be closer to the truth, but you need to see for yourself. Pandolfi will perform his brand new, acclaimed show, “One Singular Night,” highlighting the timeless American music of George Gershwin and Marvin Hamlisch, promising an unforgettable evening’s entertainment!

Don’t miss this encore appearance of one of the finest pianists of this, or any other generation, when Thomas Pandolfi takes the Fripp Friends of Music stage, Sunday, October 18th, 5 p.m., Fripp Island Community Centre, 205 Tarpon Boulevard, Fripp Island.

Tickets at the door; Adults $25/$10 Students. Cash or check, please. No advance sales. Free pass at Fripp gate; all are invited to join the artist at a complimentary catered reception following the performance. For more information, visit www.islc.net/friendsofmusic or call (843) 838-6655.
