The Spartanburg community is invited to join in a longstanding holiday tradition, the annual student-led Festival of Lessons and Carols.

Dec. 2-3, 8:00 PM

The word VISCERAL refers to the instinctive, intuitive, gut, deep-seated, and deep-rooted feelings that drive us all. How do you listen to these visceral impulses, let alone act on them? Dance Converse's Fall Concert boldly explores how these fragments of instinctive feelings emerge to not only map our daily lives and choices, but also our future visions.

Jan. 5-26

Today there is a give and take between the fields of art therapy and art education. Without art education, art therapy would not have had a place to blossom, and in return, the research done by art therapists has made its way back into the classroom. Paperworks will
spotlight the intersection of the two fields and showcase the strengths of each.

Artists Gunter and Hurlbut will present a Gallery Talk on January 5th at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm.
Jan 27-28, 7:30 PM; Jan 29, 3:00 PM

Join us for an enchanting evening of soaring arias and sweeping ballgowns, where fairytales really do come true. Converse Opera Theatre presents this charming 3-act chamber opera, true to the original French version of the Cinderella tale. It is a wonderful opportunity to introduce young people to opera, and any child dressed like Cinderella or Prince Charming, accompanied by an adult, will get in free.
