GREENVILLE, S.C. (July 1, 2014) – Bob Jones University today announced the schedule for the University’s 2014-2015 Concert, Opera and Drama Series. The series will once again bring to Greenville world-renowned artists and exciting performances. All performances are open to the public.

The 2014-2015 BJU Concert, Opera and Drama Series schedule is as follows:

BJU Symphony Orchestra  • Oct. 2 – 8 p.m. • Founder’s Memorial Amphitorium (FMA)

The University’s Symphony Orchestra, under the director of Dr. Michael W. Moore, presents an evening with guest artist David Kim, concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra. The program will feature Camille Saint-Saëns’ Violin Concerto No. 3, Jules Massenet’s “Meditation” from Thais, and other works.

The Taming of the Shrew • Nov. 20-21–8 p.m.; Nov. 22–2 p.m. • Rodeheaver Auditorium (RA)

Suitors, suitors everywhere for the charming Bianca—and not a “prospector” in sight for her ornery sister, Kate. But when Petruchio strides into town in pursuit of a bride, Kate insists that a twenty-mule team couldn’t drag her down the aisle. The Classic Players strike gold in the rip-roarin’ production of one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies.

Cantus • Jan. 27–8 p.m. • FMA

Cantus is a professional vocal chamber ensemble consisting of nine men singing in a TTBB (tenor, tenor, baritone, bass) voice arrangement. This group is known for its innovative concert programming, often drawing from numerous genres—including classical, folk, spirituals and orchestral-vocal repertoire.

Living Gallery – “Rivals on the Road” • April 2-3–4:30 and 7:30 p.m.; April 4–2. 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. • RA

“Rivals on the Road” will highlight the struggles of two characters as each in his own way deals with who Jesus of Nazareth really is and how they will respond to the Messiah. See great paintings “come alive” in life-size re-creations on the Rodeheaver stage as choirs, instrumentalists and costumed actors re-create scenes from our Lord’s ministry on earth.
