koger center for the arts university of south carolina

SC Philharmonic’s Season 60 opener with guest artist Katherine Liu, piano

Immerse yourself in the rich soundscapes of Shaosheng Li’s Wind Across A Cloudless Firmament, a world premiere work that is both deeply personal and universally resonant. Then, travel to Paris in the 1920s, a bustling city filled with creativity, innovation and joie de vivre as you experience Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major – featuring the 2022 Winner of the Arthur Fraser Competition: Katherine Lui, piano. Finally, you’ll be transported to the bustling streets of Verona, the vibrant marketplace, and the intense feud between the Montagues and Capulets. Sergei Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet” takes us there with music that is as dramatic and passionate as Shakespeare’s timeless tale.
