The weather may be cool, but the local music scene is heating up.
The 2012 ProMusica Concert Series will kick off with a performance at 4 p.m. Jan. 22 at First Presbyterian Church, 800 S. Enota Drive in Gainesville.
It will feature a music by pianist Mac Frampton. Although his performances are based on classical technique, Frampton also draws inspiration from jazz and rock, creating a "rock-alternative sound."
He has performed more than 3,000 concerts worldwide, produced several successful musical revues and recorded 22 albums. He has joined forces with other artists like Roberta Flack, Metropolitan Opera star Roberta Peters and The Fifth Dimension.
Frampton is also the founder of The Hollywood Hills Orchestra, "a 16-piece ensemble dedicated to the performance of great cinematic music."
Tickets for Frampton's performance will be available at the door for $20 for adults. As with all ProMusica concerts, children are admitted for free.
The ProMusica organization has been a staple in Northeast Georgia since 1951.
The next concert, a Community Outreach Performance, will feature Sean VanMeter, a preteen piano prodigy from Jackson County. VanMeter's performance next month will be free and is geared toward younger audiences.
His performance will be followed by the Coro Vocati Chamber Choir's concert in March.
