Tryon Concert Association 2022-2023 Season
Dear Friends of Tryon Concert Association,
Having successfully negotiated live concerts during the entire 2021-2022 concert season, Tryon Concert Association looks forward to 2022-2023 with increased confidence and deep gratitude for all of you, our amazing subscribers. Your faithfulness and generosity inspire us. We can’t wait to see all of you again at a full Tryon Fine Arts Center!
Our upcoming 68th season begins with concert pianist Conrad Tao on October 4. His huge technical skills and deep musicianship have taken the music world by storm— and we can promise you an evening like you have never seen. Then on Sunday afternoon November 13 at 3 pm at Polk County High School, we present a special concert in addition to our usual four-concert series. The Raleigh Ringers, perhaps the world’s foremost hand bell group, will astonish you with a virtuosity that has inspired bell ringers around the globe for decades. This concert must be presented in the 750 seat high school auditorium because the Ringers have such a large following. Individual tickets for the Raleigh Ringers can be purchased for $20. But as a gift to our treasured subscribers, this event is free for all who purchase a season subscription!
Young virtuoso violinist Geneva Lewis then arrives in Tryon on January 24, 2023. It is safe to say that no other 23 year old violinist in the world is in such demand for both solo recitals and concerto appearances with orchestras. We are all going to see why! Then, one of the most revered string quartets in Europe, the Bennewitz Quartet, will tour the United States from their native Prague, performing in Tryon on March 21, 2023. Their playing has been universally praised for its profound beauty and deep humanity. Finally, “the high priests of brass instruments,” the American Brass Quintet, join us for the season finale on May 4, 2023. Artists in residence at the Juilliard School in New York, the ABQ promises to be infectiously fun. You will not want to miss any of these concerts. And finally, don’t forget our TGIF program featuring audience favorite Jason DeCristofaro, percussionist, on February 17, 2023. Check our website at www. tryonconcerts.org for more about this, and all our concerts.
Your generous support allows us to bring to Tryon world-renowned artists who would not otherwise be expected in a community of our size. We trust you will continue to support TCA programming as generously as you have in the past. Please note the various giving levels. One of the rewards for subscribing early is discounted tickets for your out-of-town guests.
Thank you for your support of great music and the Tryon Concert Association. We look forward to seeing you this coming season!
Kymric Mahnke, President
