Belmont University School of Music’s student classical string and jazz quartets performed April 11 at the Williamson County Public Library in a Lyceum Committee event co-sponsored by Columbia State Community College and the Williamson County Library. The performances were free and open to the public.
The string quartet played a selection of works by Brahms, was coached by Elisabeth Small and included Danika Lukasiewicz, Chuck Callahan, Katherine Holmgren and Kevin Terry. The two performing members of the jazz quartet, Travis Patton and Shawn Williams were coached by Tracy Silverman. The jazz quartet performed selections by Herbie Hancock and some original compositions.
“The joint venture of Columbia State, the Williamson County library and Belmont reflects a rich history of educational collaboration between the two colleges and the Williamson County community,” said Shanna Jackson, the dean of Extended Services and the Columbia State Williamson County campus. “Columbia State has been an active part of the educational and cultural community in Williamson County for more than 30 years and we are delighted to bring this wonderful evening of classical and jazz music to the beautiful new library in Franklin.”
