AiM and The Stephen Foster Music Club Present Dr. Terry McRoberts, Pianist Feb. 23

Arts in McNairy has partnered with McNairy County’s oldest music organization, Stephen Foster Music Club, to present Dr. Terry McRoberts, pianist who will be performing piano compositions of Bach, Mendelssohn, Debussy, Yi and other important and contemporary composers. The concert is scheduled for February 23 at 7:30pm. The Stephen Foster Music Club is also hosting a reception in the Latta Gallery before the concert for Dr. McRoberts AT 6:30pm. This will mark the first time classical music has been presented at the Latta Theater of the McNairy County Visitor’s and Cultural Center.

Dr. Terry McRoberts is University Professor of Music at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, where he teaches piano and related courses and coordinates keyboard studies and concerts and recitals. He performs regularly as a soloist and collaborative pianist, and is principal pianist with The Jackson Symphony. He is President of the American Matthay Association for Piano and Musician Liaison to the Board of Directors of The Jackson Symphony Association. He has previously served as president of Tennessee Music Teachers Association, editor of The Matthay News and Tennessee Music Teacher, and is the Past President of the Southern Chapter of CMS. A church organist for over twenty-five years, he currently is organist at First United Methodist Church in Jackson.

“We are especially excited to be partnering with the Stephen Foster Music Club to present Dr. Terry McRoberts in concert and other musical events that one would normally have to travel to a bigger city to see, “said Paige Holmes, Managing Director of AiM. “AiM is going to serve as an umbrella organization for the music group to help them share their mission and love of music to a wider audience.”

The Stephen Foster Music Club in McNairy County was organized in 1939 and is a part of the National Federation of Music Clubs. According to local member, Melissa Smith, this 16 member group’s goal is to raise awareness of different, classic music genres and to provide scholarships to local music students. Additionally, AiM and the Stephen Foster Music Club are planning events surrounding the national celebration of music in May.

Admission for the McRoberts piano concert is $10 for adults and $5 for students and children. Tickets will be available at the door and online beginning February 12, 2013.
