JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. –
The Joint Base Charleston Youth Programs has partnered with the Charleston Concert Association to offer a Junior Intermezzo Club. The club is limited to 30 middle school-aged children and will provide free music appreciation instruction to students. Students who sign up for Junior Intermezzo Club will be required to sign a "contract" agreeing to attend the concerts selected and commit to attend pre-concert lectures to get some background on the music they will hear, the performers and their instruments and concert etiquette. Students do not need to have any music education but should have a strong desire to learn about it.
Youth Programs will provide transportation to all performances held at the Gaillard Auditorium; students and chaperones will attend performances at no cost. The following three performances have been selected for the upcoming program:
- Audra McDonald, Nov. 10, 7 p.m.
- Complexions, Jan. 14, 2012, 7 p.m.
- Tchaikovsky, Feb. 6, 2012, 7 p.m.
Middle school students interested in joining Junior Intermezzo Club should contact the Youth Center at 963-5684 by Oct. 21 to reserve their spot in the club.
