Come and listen to our compatriot Jacques Minjauw, member of the Georgia Philharmonic Orchestra, play in the concert ‘Beyond Impressionism: Debussy & Vaughan Williams‘. This concert is in collaboration with The Michael O’Neal Singers will take place on Saturday, March 25 at 7.30 pm at Lassiter High School.
You will hear impressionistic choral masterworks including Debussy’s lavish Nocturnes and Vaughan Williams’ ethereal Dona Nobis Pacem. Maestros Morrison and O’Neal share the podium to conduct 150 singers and 75 orchestra musicians.
Jacques Minjauw studied trumpet, music theory, history and transposition at the Royal Music Conservatory in Ghent, Belgium. After graduating in 1975, he was teaching music education for several years and performing with a band in Western Europe until he moved to Atlanta in 1978. In 1981 he enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences at Georgia State University where he played in the Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Band and Wind Ensemble. He studied trumpet with John Head (principal trumpet with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra at the time) and took conducting classes from Dr. Steven Winick. Since graduating from GSU with a Bachelor in Music in 1983, Jacques has enjoyed performing across the South-East with several bands, ensembles and orchestras.
