2019-2020 Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge Board of Directors:

A Letter from the President This year, 2020, marks the 20th Anniversary of Emerge. From the small, grassroots community arts organization to the strong, multifaceted non-profit organization it is today, there is so much to celebrate. But in true Emerge fashion, we will mark this anniversary by continuing to work hard to further position Pitt County as the cultural hub of eastern North Carolina. We’ve come a long way, but there is more work to be done. One of the most transformational initiatives we are leading began two years ago with the receipt of the coveted smART Cities Grant from the North Carolina Arts Council for the Greenville Emerald Loop Vision Plan. Following a rigorous Request for Qualifications process with over 40 artist teams submitting from across the Country, the artist team Haddad/Drugan, was unanimously selected to lead the visioning process. This plan envisions bold, creative, and transformational placemaking opportunities throughout our center city. Through the planning process, citizens and stakeholders from across the community have engaged in workshops and meetings and the response is unanimous ….We need this! Pitt County needs transformational creative placemaking opportunities to serve as an economic catalyst for both the public and private sector. Our stakeholders recognize that the projects in this plan are a key ingredient to recruitment and retention. Please stay tuned in the coming months as the Emerald Loop Vision Plan is unveiled. It will be Emerge’s charge to champion this plan into the future. This plan and the resulting projects are a long-term investment in our economy. We need your continued support as we work diligently to define Pitt County as the cultural hub of eastern North Carolina. Please join us!

Greenville Choral Society 50th Anniversary

The Greenville Choral Society is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this 20192020 Season. It is the largest community-based performing arts organization in eastern North Carolina with about 150-175 members. The Greenville Choral Society performs a wide variety of secular and sacred music in Pitt County and other nearby counties. There are four choral ensembles with members ranging in age from nine years to senior citizens. The history of the Greenville Choral Society is welldocumented in our archives. The organization grew out of an idea in 1969 to bring the music programs at East Carolina University (ECU) and local churches together with talented local musicians. Choir directors at area churches met with ECU music faculty members in August 1969 to join “town and gown into a more personal and

enduring relationship,” according to an earlier history of the choral society. More than 100 people formed the Greenville Community Chorus to present portions of Handel’s Messiah in Wright Auditorium in December 1969. Dr. Paul Aliapoulios, a former member of the ECU music faculty, was the founding conductor of the Greenville Community Chorus. He directed the group for two years before leaving ECU for another academic position. He returned to Greenville to conduct “And the Glory of the Lord”, one of the choruses from Handel’s Messiah, at the 50th Anniversary Concert in October 2019. Many conductors have led the choir through the years. One of the most influential leaders was Dr. Rhonda Fleming. She was the artistic director and conductor from 1980 - 1997. In 1980, she led the Greenville Community Chorus towards reorganizing itself as the nonprofit organization as pg 7

Greenville Choral Society 50th Anniversary it is known today, the Greenville Choral Society. Dr. Fleming was a choral conductor at ECU as a faculty member in the music department. She emphasized developing a repertoire of major choral works for the group’s performances. During her tenure, the choral society sang with the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra in a 1989 performance of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 (Symphony of a Thousand), and collaborated with singing star Judy Collins in a concert as part of ECU’s S. Rudolph Alexander Performing Arts Series. Dr. Fleming returned to conduct Handel’s Coronation Anthem: Zadok the Priest at the 50th Anniversary Concert in October 2019. Working with and developing young choral musicians became a prominent goal of the Greenville Choral Society during Dr. Fleming’s tenure. She founded the Children’s Chorus in 1988. Paul Flowers is the current conductor of the Children’s Chorus (grades 4-8) and has led this group since 1999. He also directs the chorus program at Hope Middle School and he is the music director at Jarvis Memorial United Methodist Church. He also directs another ensemble, Bella Voce, in the Greenville Choral Society. This ensemble is a select group of young singers from both the Children’s Chorus and the Youth Chorale. Fran Wilson provides collaborative piano support for both Bella Voce and the Children’s Chorus. Top to Bottom: Andrew Roby, Paul Flowers, and Luke Hancock

The Youth Chorale was founded in 1994. Luke Hancock is the current conductor of the Youth Chorale (grades 9-12) and has led this group since 2013. He is also the choral director at Beddingfield High School in Wilson, NC. The Youth Chorale hosted the Pitt County Choral Showcase in November 2019, where all of the choral groups in Pitt County were invited to attend. Inspired by Paul Flowers and Luke Hancock, a few high school graduates pursue music as a career. In 2004, a scholarship was established in Dr. Fleming’s honor, to be awarded to a graduating high school senior who participates in the Greenville Choral Society and who intends to study music at the college level. Alisa Gilliam provides collaborative piano support to the Youth Chorale. The Concert Choir is the adult ensemble that encompasses a wide range of ages, from college students to retirees, and a variety of occupations including teachers, college professors, office workers, business owners, lawyers, physicians, and even a few professional musicians. This ensemble performs at least three concerts each season. The December concert is often centered around music for the holidays and is often accompanied by a large orchestra. In February, we hold the annual fund-raising gala, usually featuring lighter and more contemporary music, always with an entertaining theme in mind such as Broadway selections or music from movies. This year, our annual gala was held at the Hilton and the Concert Choir sang favorites from the 1940’s radio era. Our Spring Concert is usually in late April or early May and allows an opportunity to do a variety of music. Dr. Andrew Roby is the current conductor of the Concert Choir. He is also the music director at The Memorial Baptist Church. Dr. Catherine Garner, a member of the ECU piano faculty, is the collaborative pianist for the Concert Choir. This spring, we have two wonderful concerts planned. The Children’s Chorus and Youth Chorale concert will be on Sunday, April 5th. The Concert Choir will be performing Kim André Arnesen’s important new work, Tuvayhun: Beatitudes for a Wounded World, on Sunday, May 3rd. The Spring Concerts will be held at The Memorial Baptist Church.

Painted Peacock

“Ms. Su-Su” Corbitt Suzanne Corbitt, or “Ms. Su-Su” to most, found her passion for dance at the young age of three. She has spent the last 40 years of her life inspiring younger generations with dance. Ms. Su-Su is a North Carolina native, growing up in Farmville, NC. She attended Parrott Academy in Kinston and went on to receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance from East Carolina University. She also studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, where she was able to learn from internationally renowned choreographers. Ms. Su-Su has had an extensive career as a dance teacher and studio owner. She owned and operated the “Greenville Dance Company” for 25 years before selling it in order to spend more time with her family. During this time, Ms. Su-Su was offered the opportunity to start a dance program with Greenville Recreation and Parks Department, where she has taught Ballet & Tap Dance programs & summer dance camps for the last 10 years.

Although Ms. Su-Su has instructed thousands of children and adults in dance, she says she is inspired most by her young students. “They are sponges, always learning, inquisitive, and they love being challenged.” In Ms. SuSu’s studio, you won’t hear the words “I can’t.” She tells her dancers, “...never say ‘I can’t,’ say ‘I’ll try.’ You never stop trying! It’s your passion that will take you places!” Dance is good for the mind as well as the body. Ms. SuSu says, “You are quick to see the benefits associated with music and dance when working with young students. It helps the young ones train their brains, helps with motor skills, balance, expression, selfconfidence, as well as, great physical exercise for the entire body.” For more information about dance classes with the Greenville Recreation and Parks Department, please visit: https://www.greenvillenc.gov/ government/recreation-parks/ programs-and-activities or call 252-329-4567.

Sunday In The Park Sunday In The Park is a treasured tradition in Greenville. Over four decades, this free concert series has introduced citizens to local talent, up-and-coming artists and well-known performers, bringing them to the stage on summer evenings in the park. The 47th season begins May 31, 2020 with the Tar River Community Band taking the amphitheater stage at Town Common. The series runs 13 Sundays, except for July 5, and all shows run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The late Stuart Aronson organized the first shows to fill a void left by a canceled theater series. Aronson had a conversation with Boyd Lee, then director of Greenville Recreation and Parks, and pitched the idea of having concerts to replace the longrunning theater program. Aronson recruited four groups who volunteered to perform. The community was invited to bring lawn chairs and blankets for an evening

of entertainment. They attended by the hundreds and then the thousands over the years as the series has grown. The idea was not without skeptics. “When we first started, people would say you’re going to have trouble with mosquitoes, with security, and with people being rowdy,” Aronson told The Daily Reflector in 1990. “We just stuck with it. People loved it.” Aronson organized the series for 40 years before retiring in 2013. In 2014, Recreation Supervisor Ron Harris began managing the series since Aronson’s departure. Since then, the series has expanded to 13 shows. Harris has stayed true to the traditions Aronson started by arranging a variety of performances that include country, big bands, bluegrass, Americana, & rock and blues. “It is a great way to close out the weekend with family and friends, in a great location with a wonderful variety of live music”, Harris says. A lot has changed in Greenville since 1973, but not the great music and family atmosphere offered at Sunday In The Park. One tradition that has never changed is a mid-summer performance by The

Member Highlight Chris & Dana Gauland Emerge Gallery opened its doors in 2001. The organization hadn’t yet set up memberships or even a way to give. Chris & Dana Gauland were the first donors of this new gallery, recognizing the importance of the arts within the community. Once Emerge opened their community arts center, the Gaulands enrolled their two daughters Brena and Katherine into the summer camps and programs. The Emerge staff saw the girls grow up over the years, having an appreciation for the arts like their parents.

Chris is a physician at Eastern Carolina Foot & Ankle Specialists, and Dana enjoys volunteering at Saint Peter Catholic School and JH Rose High School. We thank the Gauland Family for being incredible members of Emerge Gallery & Art Center: Home of the Pitt County Arts Council. Please see the back page of the ArtZine to become a member and supporter of the Arts. It is a true investment into our community. You can also join online at pittcountyarts.org
