South Carolina Philharmonic: “The Killer B’s”

cl-WEB-south-carolina-philharmonic-150This season-opening program from the South Carolina Philharmonic in Columbia brings together epic music from three great “B’s” in classical music: Borodin, Beethoven and Brahms. The Beethoven is the “Emperor” Concerto featuring pianist Zachary Hughes, who also favored the audience at the Koger Center in September of 2012 with encores by Mozart and Schumann. Capping off the program is Brahms’ beloved Third Symphony.
