Lawrence Quinnett, who was our guest artist-in-residence at BATC 2018, will be returning to in 2020 to perform Bach’s set of six French Suites. Quinnett is Assistant Professor of Music at Livingston College in North Carolina, where he teaches piano and music theory. He holds a Doctor of Music degree from Florida State University. Click to hear him perform Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in A Flat Major.
BATC 2019 was a fabulous event. We’ll be posting a series of photos taken by various festival participants.
The first few photos come from violinist/violist Shannon Farley, who participated multiple times during the day: she played duets with her father Tim on guitar in the morning, and with guitarist Chris Allen in the afternoon, her students performed in the evening, and her string quartet closed out the festival at night.
Thank you for your cheerful participation all day long, Shannon, and for the photos which capture the energy and enthusiasm you brought to the festival!
Audio for the Arts is in its Tech Week, preparing for next Saturday’s 12-hour marathon. BATC is so grateful to all the recording and video specialists, for coming on site to make the Festival run as smoothly as possible.
