“Imagine a place holding these beautiful instruments, holding regular concerts—downtown—and you can imagine what another arts destination ‘first’ this will be for Greenville and the Upstate.”
—Roy S. Fluhrer, PhD, Executive Director
Carolina Music Museum was recently featured on the Architectural Digest website as one of “The 15 Most Noteworthy Museums Opening This Year.”
Dedicated exhibit and performance rooms will house more than 40 English, European, and American pianos and harpsichords dating from 1570 to 1845.
WSPA’s Jennifer Martin took a first look inside the downtown museum. When we open in late March, the museum will host concerts at least once a month, ranging from Appalachian music to jazz.
“Educational events will engage students and adults in our community. We want to provide a total musical immersion experience and be one of the ‘go-to’ places when people think of music in the Upstate.”
—Tom Strange, Curator and Artistic Director
Watch this space for our Grand Opening announcement in late March.
In addition to classical music, we will represent the roots and genres of Appalachian, African-American, French Huguenot, Middle Eastern, Asian, European, and other cultural influences that have shaped the history and future of music.
