Prince Frederick, MD- The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) hosts the second free concert in its 2019 – 2020 Ward Virts Concert Series at its Prince Frederick Campus Sunday, Nov. 10. The concert features the Southern Maryland Chamber Players and starts at 3 p.m. with doors opening at 2:30 p.m.
The Ward Virts Concert Series celebrates the life and talent of Ward Virts, a talented Southern Maryland pianist who died suddenly in 1993. A group of Ward’s friends and classmates conceived the Ward Virts Piano Project to bring the love of life, beauty, and music that Ward embodied to a new generation of Southern Maryland students, performers, and appreciative audiences.
The concerts are performed on a world-class handcrafted Bosendorfer Grand Piano, a gift to CSM’s Prince Frederick Campus from the Ward Virts Piano Project. Sponsors of the 2018-2019 series include the CSM Foundation, Dr. and Mrs. Henry Virts, Eric and Rané Franklin, Mary Anna Phillips and Stovy and Anne Brown. Additional funding is provided by the Arts Council of Calvert County and Maryland State Arts Council grants. For dates and musician bios related to the Ward Virts series, visit Ward Virts Calender
