David Coucheron & Friends Recital
This coming Monday, 10/24, at 8:00 pm David Coucheron, Concertmaster for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, will be presenting a recital in Morgan Hall at Kennesaw State University’s Bailey Center; he will be joined by fellow ASO musicians and KSU faculty including pianist Julie Coucheron, violinists Helen Kim and Kenn Wagner, violist Catherine Lynn, and cellist Charae Krueger.
Dr. Parker, the orchestra director at KSU has offered AHS students and their families complimentary tickets to this performance. If you and your family would like to attend email Dr. Parker directly at email@example.com with the name you would like the tickets held under and the number of tickets needed.
He asks that requests be submitted no later than noon on Monday. Tickets will be held at the Bailey Center box office under the given name and can be picked up beginning at 7 pm before the concert.
I just received notice about this recital today, but I must say that it is an incredible opportunity to see some of Atlanta’s VERY BEST string players!
