The Brasstown Concert Association (BCA) will conclude its 2013-2014 season on Sunday, May 25, by presenting rising talent from the area.

“We wanted to celebrate our 40th year of outstanding programming by showcasing young artists who will make the next 40 years an exciting musical adventure,” says BCA president George Heilner. “We hope other young musicians will attend the concert and be inspired to continue their own pursuit of musical excellence,” adds BCA board member Carole Hall.

The concert will feature violinist Ilsa Kelischek, a native of Brasstown and granddaughter of master violin maker George Kelischek.


It seemed rather fitting that Tiffany Terhart’s favorite hairpiece wasn’t worn by one of the primary actors during Western Carolina’s recent production of “Les Miserables.”

While the work of Terhart and her Southwestern Community College classmates wasn’t the main draw, they were vital to the production directed by Tony-nominated Broadway actor Terrence Mann. “Les Miserables” was on stage in Cullowhee earlier this month.



Films created by Western Carolina University students will be screened at the sixth annual Controlled Chaos Film Festival in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on Friday, May 2.

The festival begins at 7 p.m. and features short works from a range of genres created by students from the Motion Picture and Television Production Program and the School of Stage and Screen.

“WCU’s Controlled Chaos Film Festival is a unique opportunity to see the hard work that student filmmakers put into projects that range from 15 seconds to 20 minutes long,” said Andrew Dyson, an event organizer and a senior from Spartanburg, S.C. “We hope that film lovers will come and enjoy a little bit of the ‘movie magic’ that they’ve come to expect from our top-notch film program.”


Western Carolina University music students and Asheville Symphony Orchestra string musicians will perform together at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 1, in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on campus.

The event is the final concert of the academic year through WCU’s Artist-in-Residence Program, which brings professional musicians to campus to join WCU students and faculty members in concert. The series is completing its second year.

Michael Lancaster, director of the WCU Concert Choir and University Chorus, will conduct the concert. Both the Concert Choir and University Chorus will be featured in the performance, along with the Western Carolina Community Chorus, directed by Robert Holquist, retired member of the WCU music faculty. The program will consist of “Te Deum” and “Lord Nelson Mass,” both by Franz Joseph Haydn.

A reception will be held in the lobby of the Bardo Arts Center immediately following the concert, with special recognition for recipients of the School of Music Distinguished Alumni and Distinguished Service awards.
