Deep roots require dedication, passion, and a true commitment to music, something our orchestra members, featured artists, and guest soloists and composers all share; right in our own Spartanburg community.
Musicians are often the best multitaskers. During a performance, they can take on any number of roles including conversationalist, storyteller, dancer, painter, and confidant. Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out is one of the few bands that achieves all of this in just a few short minutes.
Curators who commit to increasing gender parity in their musical programming find that there is a world of exciting “new” literature from every time period, in every genre, that can be found by including women. For those of you who think you have never heard music by women composers, I invite you to embrace a beautiful, brave, “new” world.
On the Tuesday, November 27, the Spartanburg Community Band will play for the annual lighting of the Christmas tree in Denny’s Plaza, continuing a holiday tradition that has been a part of Spartanburg for many years.
When I am on the road (as I am presently) and think of Spartanburg, an affirming sense of belonging and goodness fills my spirit. It has only been a couple of months since we’ve lived here, but it already feels like home.
