Dear Series Subscriber . . .

Thank you

First, I would like to thank you for your generous patronage over these last 28 years. We have been able to grow culturally and artistically because of your support of FPC Concerts’ Promenades. This coming year we will again be presenting outstanding world-class artists. We are offering four fabulous concerts for an unbeatable price! There will be general seating sold on a first come-first served basis. Concerts will be on Thursdays at 1:00 PM except for the concert of the great Metropolitan Opera Diva, Susan Graham. This concert will be held on March 28, 2014 at 7:30 PM. (Remaining individual tickets for this single concert will be $40.)

We give special thanks for a generous grant from the City of Myrtle Beach and those “concert masters” who bought $1,000 reserved seats in the first 4 center rows to help our FPC Concerts continue. We are also grateful for accommodations for the artists given by Gold Crown Management: The Yachtsman Resort. We offer many thanks to FPC for the use of their space and instruments over these last 28 years. Come join us this season for world-class performers at a price you can afford!

Susan Graham, one of the world’s foremost stars of opera and recital, is a compelling and versatile singing actress. Celebrated as an expert in French music, Graham has been honored by the French government with the title "Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur.” She is the leading mezzo-soprano at the Metropolitan Opera, Paris Opera, and Covent Garden Opera. Gramophone Magazine calls her “America’s favorite mezzo.”
