SC Phil presents Beethoven & Blue Jeans
October 8 @ 7:30 pm
Grammy Nominated Violinist Tessa Lark Performs with SC Philharmonic
The South Carolina Philharmonic presents Beethoven & Blue Jeans Saturday, October 8, 2022 at 7:30 PM at the Koger Center for the Arts. This annual event is often the highest-attended concert at the Koger Center for the orchestra each season, and this year’s installment features a blockbuster lineup of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4 in Bb Major, Rossini’s Overture to “La scala di seta” (The Silken Ladder) and Michael Torke’s Appalachian-inspired composition Sky. The Torke will feature critically-acclaimed and Grammy Nominated guest soloist Tessa Lark on violin. All concerts this season are presented in person and livestreamed, and tickets may be purchased at www.scphilharmonic.com.
Beethoven & Blue Jeans is one of the SC Philharmonic’s hit annual concert events. It provides audiences with an opportunity to engage with the work of Beethoven, it regularly welcomes a national star to Columbia and it invites audiences to unbutton and adorn themselves with their favorite denim from their wardrobe – demystifying the classical music experience and making it more comfortable. It should be noted that the SC Phil always welcomes patrons from all walks of life, and champions a “come as you are” mentality for all concert events.
To celebrate the opening of the 22/23 Masterworks Series, the SC Philharmonic is also presenting Philtober Fest, a public concert event, on October 8, 2022 from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM on the Koger Center outdoor stage. This concert will feature performances from Boomtown Trio, The Wolfman String Band and The Flying Js. The music will range from bluegrass, blues, Americana and folk. Food and drink will be available for purchase from the Thirsty Fellow Concessions Trailer, Brown Sistaz Island Vibz, and Koger Center concessions.
Beethoven & Blue Jeans will be presented on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at 7:30 PM at the Koger Center for the Arts. In-person or livestream tickets may be purchased at scphilharmonic.com or by calling the Koger Center Box Office at 803-251-2222.
