ACTU presents bonus Sunday at Four Concert

Arts for the Community at Thomas University presents a bonus concert for cello and piano as the final installment of the Sundays at Four season at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 10, at Trinity Anglican Church, located at 325 W. Jackson St., Thomasville. The concert will feature two Florida State University College of Music theory professors.

Dr. Evan Jones is Professor of Music Theory and Coordinator of Music Theory and Composition in the College of Music at Florida State University. He holds the Ph.D. in music theory and the D.M.A. in cello performance from the Eastman School of Music. An active cellist, Dr. Jones has performed under the auspices of the Banff Centre for the Arts, Baroque Southeast, the College Music Society, and the Tallahassee Bach Parley, as well as on faculty recital programs at FSU. He previously appeared as principal cellist of the Binghamton Philharmonic, the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, and the Montreal Chamber Players, and currently serves as assistant principal cellist in the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra.

Dr. Andrew Aziz studied piano at the Juilliard Pre-College Division, the Manhattan School of Music Preparatory Division, Boston University and graduated with a double concentration in music and applied mathematics from Brown University. He earned his Ph.D. in music theory from the Eastman School of Music, where he was a graduate instructor. He is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Theory at the College of Music at FSU.

Series coordinator Dr. Karl Barton stated, “We didn’t have a regularly scheduled Sunday concert in April, so I am glad that Dr. Jones reached out to me about performing in Thomasville. I am very excited to have a bonus concert on our series, and I encourage everyone to come and experience the excellent acoustics of the sanctuary.”

The program will include works by Chopin, Dvořák and Rachmaninoff. The concert is free and open to the public with a suggested donation of $5. A reception will follow the performance. For additional information, email actu@thomasu.edu or call 229-227-6964.
