An unforgettable evening

If you did not attend the Valentine’s Day POPS Concert by the Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra in Twichell Auditorium at Converse College, you missed a treat for the eyes and ears. The orchestra, conducted by the beautiful and talented Sarah Ioannides, performed selections from Ellington, Gilliland, Gershwin and other popular jazz favorites. Guest artist Jens Lindemann, a celebrated trumpet soloist, was amazing with his artistry. The end of an unforgettable evening was the dueling of the saxophonist from the Spartanburg Jazz Ensemble with the guest trumpet soloist. Don’t miss the Spartanburg Philharmonic’s concert on May 4, the 100-year anniversary of Igor Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring.” – Joan Gibson, Spartanburg Herald Journal
