The Interlude Concerts, so well attended in July, will continue for the month of August.
These concerts began years ago when Rev. Hunter Coleman of First Presbyterian Church and Father Mike Jones of The Episcopal Church of the Incarnation decided to create a new ministry for Highlands. They realized it was sometimes difficult for residents and visitors to slow down and take a few minutes to sit in contemplation during the high season on The Plateau and so, The Interlude Concerts were born.
Each concert is free and dress is casual. They’re held Wednesdays at 2:00 P.M. and you’re invited to take an hour out of your busy day to enjoy these live presentations of instrumental and choral music.
On August 2 Trey Wright will be performing at the Episcopal Church of The Incarnation. Wright is a jazz guitarist, educator, and composer from Roswell, Georgia, and is a faculty member of the Kennesaw State School of Music.
The following week, August 9, Mezzo-Soprano Pamela Dillard will appear at the First Presbyterian Church of Highlands. Dillard is a Professor of Voice at Spelman College in Atlanta and an early childhood music specialist.
On August 16, Incarnation’s own organist and choir director, classical pianist Robert Henry, will be performing at his home church. An International Steinway Artist, Mr. Henry has earned a reputation for giving stunning performances of the most demanding repertoire.
Silly Ridge Roundup Band will be at the First Presbyterian Church of Highlands for the last interlude concert of the season, August 23. Silly Ridge Roundup plays an eclectic blend of Americana, Folk, Bluegrass and will have you tapping your toes and leaving with a huge smile on your face.
It’s thanks to Angie Jenkins of First Presbyterian Church and Robert Henry of The Episcopal Church of the Incarnation that such heralded talent is made available to Highlands during the season. Join them Wednesdays at 2:00 P.M. for these free concerts.
