WALESKA — Three upcoming performances at the Falany Performing Arts Center at Reinhardt University offer diverse opportunities for concertgoers.

The Holmes Family Trio, with Eric Tippens, will be the first performance in the upcoming series on Aug. 23 at 7:30 p.m.

The Holmes Family Trio has been singing together since early childhood. The two brothers, Sam and David Holmes, and their sister, Alison Holmes Adams, have been featured in several concerts at the Big Canoe Terraces accompanied by Eric Tippens.

The trio and Tippens will provide an afternoon of outhern Gospel music, said Jessica Akers, director of Falany.

The group will present classics such as, “One Day at a Time,” “I’ll Fly Away,” “Somebody Loves Me,” and many more, she said.

Tickets for the Aug. 23 performance are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors 55 and older and students, and $10 for children 12 and younger.

Next up is the Hunts, an indie folk band that will perform Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the arts center in Waleska.

The Hunts come from Chesapeake, Va.

“Seven brothers and sisters — this band has a passion for creating compelling music,” Akers said. “From this passion, they have combined one another’s gifts of writing, composing and musicianship.”

Stringed instruments, surrounded by enchanting harmonies and thrilling rhythms, bring together an organic yet transcending sound, she said.

In 2012, The Hunts released their newest album “We Were Young.” The Hunts’ first track on the album, “Make This Leap,” is receiving radio play on the east coast.

Prices for tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors 55 and older and students and $15 for children 12 and younger.

On Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m., Andrew Tyson, the 2011 Young Concert Artists winner, will perform at Reinhardt University’s Falany Performing Arts Center.

Having recently performed with Ray Chen in Luxembourg and Belgium, Tyson now takes the stage at Reinhardt University’s Falany Performing Arts Center.

Winner of the 2011 Young Concert Artists, Tyson also has been awarded second prize at the Kosciuszko Foundation Chopin Piano Competition and a Silver Award from the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts.

In 2008, Tyson attended the Taos School of Music, where he received instruction from Robert McDonald, as well as the Borromeo, Brentano and St. Lawrence String Quartets.

Since then, he has become an active chamber player, performing this season at Bowdoin College, in the Bay Chamber Concert Series in Rockport, Maine, and at the Brevard Music Festival.

“His stylings and artistic expressions heard throughout the music will be a delight as he performs in the Falany Performing Arts Center, where his chamber music will shine,” Akers said.

Prices for tickets for Tyson’s performance are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors 55 and older and students, and for children 12 and younger.

Additional service charges may apply. For ticket information, call the Falany Performing Arts Center box office at (770) 720-9167, or visit www.reinhardt.edu/fpac.
