Trinity United Methodist Church of Darlington is set to welcome renowned pianist Rocky Fretz for a live concert at the Trinity Fellowship Hall, October 11 at 4 p.m.
Fretz, a recording artist, composer of contemporary instrumental music, and a pianist for almost 50 years, has played over 7,500 shows and has a reputation for highly entertaining live performances.
A veteran of the Carolina Opry in Myrtle Beach, Fretz played 4,500 shows there between 1986 and 2003 as an original cast member. He spends much of his time touring, and has played South Carolina venues such as the Newberry Opera House and the Strand Theater in Georgetown. Fretz has also performed at over 150 churches throughout the country.
Fretz has collaborated with actor Bill Oberst, Jr. on the stage show, “I Love to Tell the Story: Great Hymns and the Stories Behind Them.”
His recordings include eight albums with an emphasis on original piano music. His latest release, “The Path Ahead,” won an Independent Music Award and recognition from various industry publications and blogs.
An ordained minister and founder of StreetReach Ministries, a homeless shelter and mission started in 1992, Fretz continues his spiritual work through his music, and members of Trinity United Methodist Church hope the community will come out and experience Rocky’s energy and heart at this concert.
Admission is free, and all are welcome. Rocky Fretz will perform in the church’s Fellowship Hall at 4 p.m., October 11. For more information, contact Anne Baldwin at (843) 944-0267.
