The College of Charleston Orchestra will perform its annual spring concert, conducted by Yuriy Bekker. The program will include Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s popular symphonic suite “Scheherazade” based on “The Arabian Nights,” and also the world premiere of “Amoral Story” by student composer Maxx Bradley.
According to Bradley, “This piece tells a story that does have a sense of right and wrong. I attempted to evoke motion that remains nebulous throughout the piece but still manifestly moves and develops. Whether that movement is in a honorable or wrongful direction is up to the listener.”
Bradley is a junior at the College of Charleston studying music composition and jazz piano. He has had nine pieces performed during his career at the College, including a work for the Charleston Symphony Orchestra’s Young People’s Concert in 2015. In addition to music, he is also passionate about 3D rendering, animation, and writing short stories.
The concert will take place on Monday, March 27, 2017 at 7:30 p.m., at the Gaillard Center Performance Hall, 95 Calhoun St. Admission is free, with $20 suggested donation for adults. For information, contact CofC Concerts at 843.953.6315 or visit music.cofc.edu/concerts
