“Friends of Wadsworth Concert – the Legacy Continues”

The Newnan Cultural Arts Commission is pleased to announce that the annual “Friends of Wadsworth Concert – The Legacy Continues” will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at 7:30pm at the Charles Wadsworth Auditorium in beautiful downtown Newnan.

Newnan’s famous son Charles Wadsworth began the annual tradition in 1993 as a way of raising funds to renovate the auditorium in the circa 1939 Newnan Municipal Building. From 1993-2013, the annual event was hosted by Wadsworth and was known as the “Wadsworth & Friends” Concert.”  Wadsworth hosted the concert and performed with up and coming musical artists from the international chamber music scene that he invited to perform with him. The auditorium was named in honor of Charles Wadsworth in 1998.

The 23rd annual chamber music concert continues for a 2nd year under the guidance of Charles Wadsworth’s hand-picked successor – soprano Courtenay “Becky” Budd. A Newnan native, Budd is excited about returning to her hometown. “I am thrilled and humbled to be asked to continue the annual Newnan concert that Charles Wadsworth began. Charles and his wife Susan have been wonderful role models and mentors to me in my career.”

A First Prize Winner of Young Concert Artists Auditions, Ms. Budd has been heard with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the National Symphony, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and repeatedly at Carnegie Hall, Spoleto USA, and the Grand Teton and Bard Music Festivals.

She also was a Metropolitan Opera National Finalist. Her operatic performances include Ilia in Idomeneo at Alice Tully Hall, Baby Doe, Zerbinetta, Zerlina, Pamina, Amy in Little Women, Laurie in The Tender Land, and Marie in La fille du régiment, with such companies as Central City Opera, Opera Omaha, Atlanta Opera, Sugar Creek Festival, and the Colorado and Charleston Symphonies.

Ms. Budd is an avid recitalist and chamber musician. Metropolitan Museum of Art audiences enjoyed her performances of Rachmaninoff songs on Ruth Laredo’s Concerts with Commentary series. She has appeared seven seasons in Spoleto Festival USA’s Dock Street Chamber Music Series, alongside her mentor and frequent collaborator, pianist Charles Wadsworth. Her recital performances with Del Tredici at Bargemusic, were praised by New Music Connoisseur as “not only beautifully expressive but impeccable in her delivery of every word and note.”

Joining Ms. Budd on the Wadsworth Auditorium stage are some familiar faces to Newnan audiences: vocalist Indra Thomas, violinist Chee-Yun, pianist Andrew Armstrong, cellist Wendy Sutter, and flutist Tara Helen O’Connor.

Tickets are available in downtown Newnan at Let Them Eat Toffee and The Coweta County Visitors Center in the Historic Courthouse on the Historic Court Square. Tickets are also available at Morgan Jewelers at Ashley Park and the Bank of North Georgia at Thomas Crossroads. You may purchase the tickets online at www.brownpapertickets.com

For more information about the concert, you may contact City of Newnan public information officer Gina Snider at GSnider@CityofNewnan.org.
