    About the artist.....

    Pianist SCOTT CARRELL has captivated audiences in the U.S., Europe and China with his virtuosic flair, expressive playing and informative comments, by presenting innovative programs of both classical and jazz works, including discussion of the works and the composers.

    A native of Texas, Carrell has performed numerous recitals as soloist and as collaborator, including concerto appearances with the Austin Symphony Orchestra, the Pine Bluff Symphony Orchestra, the Southwestern University Orchestra, the Plainview Symphony Orchestra, the Fort Worth Civic Orchestra, the Little Rock Wind Symphony, and twice with the Harding University/Community Orchestra. An active chamber musician, he co-founded the Searcy Chamber Music Series and has performed on many of its concerts. He has also performed in recital and small ensembles in Florence, Italy, and Mainz, Germany. In 2014, he was invited to Guangzhou, China, to perform a concert, to give lectures, and to teach piano students in masterclasses.

    Receiving degrees from Southwestern University, the University of Illinois, and the D.M.A. from the University of North Texas, he studied with internationally-known artists Drusilla Huffmaster, Ian Hobson, and Vladimir Viardo and participated in masterclasses with Abbey Simon, Gail Delente,and Dominique Merlet. The French Piano Institute awarded him a prize for the best performance of a work by Henri Dutilleux at the 1996 FPI Festival in Paris, France. He was twice honored with the Teacher Achievement Award from Harding University, for the 20032004 and 2012-2013 academic years.

    In 2005 his compact disc “Crossings” was released, including the world premiere recording of the title work, an original composition based on a painting by an Arkansas artist. The disc "Ragtime Memories" was released in 2007. Other recent premieres of original works include a Suite for Brass Quintet (2011), Dance for Oboe and Piano (2011), and Conversation (2015) for double-reed trio. In 2016, Carrell completed the disc "Piano Works of Noël Gallon," featuring world premiere recordings of music by a Paris Conservatory professor.

    An active member of the Arkansas State Music Teachers, he has presented sessions at both regional and state conferences and served as the state coordinator for the student composition competition; he began serving as the MTNA South Central Division coordinator in 2004. His judging activities include students at all levels, from local festivals to national competitions. Currently teaching piano, piano related courses, and music theory at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, Carrell is in demand as a soloist, collaborative artist, teacher and adjudicator.

    Join us for a wonderful dinner in Christ of the Hills Fellowship Hall.  We will then retire to the sanctuary for a fantastic evening of Irving Berlin music brought to us by the same All Star Cast that brought us the Salute to Gershwin last season.

    Leading us down memory lane will be The Bob Boyd Sounds with Bob Boyd on piano, David Higginbotham on bass, Randy McDonald on drums, and Dr. Sim Flora on trombone and flute.  All four form a vocal group that has been compared to the Four Freshmen and the Modernaires.  Joining this group will be Earl Hesse on Sax and Clarinet and the popular Shirley Chauvin on vocals.  Cole Porter said, "Irving Berlin has no 'place' in American music. He IS American music!" 

    Dinner will be served at 5:30 PM and the show will begin at 7:00 PM.  Tickets are $15 for the dinner and $10 for the show.  The event will be held at Christ of the Hills Methodist Church in Hot Springs Village.  We are delighted that Ike Eisenhauer Insurance Agency, Inc is our event sponsor for this wonderful evening.

    You may register and purchase tickets on our website later this year. Sales for dinner tickets end on March 17.  Tickets purchased March 13 or later will be held at the will call table at the event.  Several board members will also be selling tickets.  To purchase tickets by phone, please contact Nancy Jorgensen at 501-984-2266
