The program features piano music inspired by Shakespeare. This marks the 400th anniversary of his death, and the program explores the international appeal that Shakespeare has retained over the past four hundred years. Music will include selections by French, German, and Russian music that are representative of the sonnets and plays such as Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The program will be rounded out with American and Spanish works.
Dr. Smith, a Union native, is Assistant Professor of Music and Coordinator of Keyboard Studies at Coker College where he has taught on the faculty since 2013. He is also the interim music director at Darlington Presbyterian Church. He earned degrees from Furman University, Dallas Theological Seminary, and the University of South Carolina. Smith and his wife Abigail live in Hartsville with their four children.
