Charles Wadsworth may be retired, but his musical legacy will live on in a series of chamber music concerts in Newnan.

“We have an emphasis this year on the legacy continuing,” said Kim Wright, concert chair for the 2014 classical concert event at the Wadsworth Auditorium.

In fact, it’s right there in the title.

“We have named the 2014 concert Friends of Wadsworth - The Legacy Continues,” said Wright.

“We are working on ticket sales now,” she said. General admission tickets will be $20 and will be available starting March 14 at Let Them Eat Toffee on the Newnan Court Square and in the Visitors Center in the Coweta County Courthouse, at Morgan's Jewelers in Ashley Park, and at Bank of North Georgia at Thomas Crossroads.

“We want people to know that although Charles has retired, he has hand-picked Courtenay Budd to be his successor, to pick up the torch and carry on this legacy,” she said. Budd, a soprano, will be hosting the concert and performing.

“She has arranged for some world-class musicians to perform, which include some of Newnan's favorites: violinist Chee-Yun, cellist Edward Arron, clarinetist Todd Palmer, pianists Jeewon Park and Andrew Armstrong,” said Wright.

The Newnan Cultural Arts Commission has sponsored Wadsworth concerts since 2005. Arts commission members recently announced the first “Friends of Wadsworth Concert — The Legacy Continues” will be held April 26 at 7:30 p.m.
