Some buzz at Coker College


The Coker College Cobra Men's basketball team won the quarter finals of the Carolina's Conference tournament last night resulting in jubilation among the fans. This Thursday night they will be hosting the semi finals in the quest for the Tournament championship.

Jake Murphy, a Coker College golfer, is going into the final round of a tournament as the leader. Here is the lead paragraph of the news release about the tourney:

Coker sophomore Jake Murphy (Hamilton, N.J.) holds a one stroke lead on Abilene Christian's Alex Carpenter and Barton's Dermont McElhennon after two round s of play at the Golfweek Division II Invitational in Orlando, Fla.


On Tuesday evening the college is hosting a piano recital in the Elizabeth Coker Watson Theater. Here is what Dr. Jun Sato said as she announced this concert:

Piano Recital

Dr. Charles Fugo, Professor of Piano at the University of South Carolina, will be performing a solo piano recital tonight at 7:30pm in Watson Theater. Admission is free to the public.

Dr. Fugo is one of the most imaginative performers I’ve heard and his recital program for tonight highlights this quality in his playing. The recital includes works by the following composers: Chopin, Liszt, Schumann, Mozart and Scarlatti. Dr. Fugo has an extensive tonal palette and is also one of the few pianists I know who is willing to take risks to achieve the most effective way of communicating music. I promise it will be a treat for everyone who loves to hear live performance.

Art Exhibition

Heather Freeman's mixed media art exhibit opened on Monday night and is on display at the Gallery in the Art Department on campus. Here is a some of what was said in announcing this exhibit:

Ms. Freeman’s exhibition of mixed media prints (ink, graphite and watercolor over digital print on watercolor paper) opens with a reception in the Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery tonight at 7:00. The reception is free, refreshments will be served, and the public is invited. Ms. Freeman’s show remains on view through March 25, 2011.

These are just a few of the things creating a bit of buzz on the Coker College campus and they give a glimpse of the richness of activities offered to students and the public.
