ABOUT THE ECCS...
The East Cooper Concert Series was begun by Dr. Lorna
Barker in 1992 as a means to provide regular classical music
performances East of the Cooper. Each concert features
professional Lowcountry musicians and offers a variety of
musical styles. ECCS offers concerts that provide a wide
diversity of repertoire, all within a warm and friendly
environment. ECCS is scheduling four concerts for 2014 - 2015 at
Christ Church, all beginning at 7:00 pm. The admission
price to each concert is $15 (students $8). Season subscriptions are available
for $50 each (students $20.)
The East Cooper Concert Series is 100% financially dependent on
tickets at the door, business sponsorship and private donations.
The contributed money pays musician fees and paper/postage
costs. All involved with the organization of the series are
The goal of the East Cooper Concert Series is to provide fun,
informative, yet highly professional classical concerts in the
East Cooper area. There are four concerts planned for this
season, beginning in October and ending in April. The concerts
will be approximately 75 minutes in length. The performers are
very talented professional classical musicians who need a venue
to perform their solo repertoire.
During each concert, these musicians will talk about their
pieces, tell the audience what to listen for, share musical
history and knowledge and grow their audience's appreciation of
classical music. This is an opportunity to bridge that formal
gap between performer and audience and audience and "concert."
All concerts are held at Christ Church, 2304 Hwy. 17
North (light at 17 and Long Point).
