Once Upon An Orchestra

SCCT has a special collaborative partnership with the Greenville Symphony Orchestra (GSO), where three times a year we bring Once Upon An Orchestra to our headquarters, free-of-charge to children and their families. Once Upon An Orchestra is a performance by our Principal Teaching Artist who presents a character from a children’s book while the GSO chamber ensemble performs classical pieces selected for each story.

These performances are recommended for grades K3-5th, and generally last about 30 minutes. Reservations are NOT required!

Please note we cannot accommodate strollers & car carriers in our performance space.

Performs on the Teaching Stage at SCCT Temporary Headquarters–1200 Pendleton Street.
