ROCK HILL, S.C. – The season-opening concert of the Providence Chamber Music Series will highlights the talents of several Winthrop University faculty members.

The concert, which takes place at 7 p.m. Oct. 7, will showcase associate music composition professor Ron Parks’ musical trio piece, “Things Get Out of Hand.” Comprised of parts for piano, cello and violin, the piece was composed by Parks in 2009 for core members of the Out of Bounds Ensemble, a musical ensemble-in-residence at Winthrop University and Central Piedmont Community College.

Parks drew on his affinity for jazz-fusion and post-minimalism for “Things Get Out of Hand.” Music faculty member and pianist Tomoko Deguchi will be joined in the performance by renowned cellist Nick Lamp and violinist Tatiana Karpova.

Deguchi will also be a featured performer in two additional concerts in the Providence series: once when she teams again with Lampo and Charlotte Symphony flutist Amy Orsinger Whitehead for a performance in Feb. 2013 and again in the final concert in March 2013.

Now in its 30th season, the Providence Chamber Music Series has long been regarded as among the finest chamber music series in the Carolinas. Most of the players participating in the series are drawn from the Charlotte Symphony. However some, like Lampo and Deguchi, are regional professional-level players who share a passion for chamber music performance.

The opening concert on Oct. 7 is free and open to the public at the Providence United Methodist Church at 2810 Providence Road in Charlotte, N.C.
