In The Community

The Spartanburg Philharmonic partners with a variety of community, health, and education organizations to provide opportunities for all ages and abilities to enjoy our music and our musicians.


Classical Conversations

Learn more about the Classics concerts with our Music Director and knowledgeable host as they share insight into each concert program through stories that illuminate the fascinating world of music. Classical Conversations take place one hour prior to Classics concerts.



Music Sandwiched In

The "Music Sandwiched In" program features 22 free concerts each year held in the Barrett Room of the Spartanburg County Downtown Library. This 21-year partnership enriches the lives of the intergenerational population of attendees. Over its span, thousands of individuals have enjoyed many genres of music including jazz, bluegrass, classical, and rock. During "Music Sandwiched In" the doors of the Barrett Room are left open, and the 105,000 square foot library is filled with music, laughter, and applause. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch to enjoy the concert or to purchase a lunch catered from local chef Bill McClellan.



Spartanburg Music Trail

The Spartanburg Music Trail is a walking music history trail throughout downtown Spartanburg that features famous musicians who have a connection to Spartanburg. Two musicians are featured on each sign along the trail which includes a wide variety of musical genres. The trail is highly supported by the Chamber of Commerce's Convention and Visitor's Bureau and is regularly mentioned on tourism websites.



Vet Tix for Veterans

The Spartanburg Philharmonic partners with Vet Tix to provide free tickets to all branches of currently-serving Military and Veterans, including immediate family of troops KIA. This opportunity helps reduce stress, strengthen family bonds, build life-long memories, and encourage service members and veterans to stay engaged with local communities and American life. We support our troops by honoring their service and providing positive family and life experiences, during and after their years of service to our country.
