KENNESAW, Ga.—The College of the Arts at Kennesaw State University will present guest artists Keith and Priscilla Jefcoat performing an evening of four-hand piano pieces on Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. in the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center.
The Jefcoat’s four-hand piano stylings are fairly rare in the world of musical performance, according to David Watkins, director of keyboard studies at KSU. “This is an intimate form of piano music,” he says. “In these types of performances, the piano is more orchestral.” Sitting side by side, the Jefcoats will play pieces from composers such as Franz Schubert, Claude Debussey and Samuel Barber.
Keith Jefcoat earned his bachelor’s degree in piano performance from the University of Georgia. Since then he has accompanied choral groups, chamber ensembles, instrumentalists and vocalists, and has taught piano privately. He is also the founding member of the Lanier Chamber Singers.
Priscilla Jefcoat earned her doctorate in musical arts in piano at the University of Georgia. She teaches piano and music theory at Brenau College in Gainesville, Ga. She is active in several music organizations, including the Georgia Music Teachers Association.
Admission to the performance is free. For more information, visit www.kennesaw.edu/arts or call the box office at 770-423-6650.
