Culture notes: 5-Steinway concert at KSU; chorus goes from Marietta to England; ‘Memphis’ at the movies

MUSIC
Five Steinways, 440 keys

Several years ago Kennesaw State University patron Bobbie Bailey donated four Steinway concert grand pianos to KSU’s Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center and one to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. Though each of the instruments is named for a member of Bailey’s family, the five have never been played in a single concert. That changes at 8 p.m. Saturday[3/19] at “440 Keys: A Reunion,” a concert featuring the KSU Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble, faculty pianists and guest pianist Dmitri Levkovich. Limited tickets, $15, at www.kennesaw.edu, 770-423-6650. HOWARD POUSNER

Before undertaking a concert tour of England, the 110 singers of the Georgia Festival Chorus will give a departing concert at Marietta’s First Baptist Church at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.[3/20] The chorus, under founding director Frank Boggs, will perform works by Mozart, John Finley Williamson, Egil Hovland and other composers. The English tour takes the singers to venues including Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford and the Church of the Holy Trinity in Stratford-upon-Avon before joining other choral musicians for Prom Praise at London’s Royal Albert Hall. 148 Church St., Marietta.
