The Carolina Music Museum is very pleased to have received a Tourism Fund Grant of $5,000 (ATAX grant) to assist with the building of display cases for our next major exhibit, Fanfares, Marches and Technology, beginning in September of 2019. The exhibit will feature selected pieces from one of the world’s finest collections of over 600 historic brass instruments from the Joe and Joella Utley Collection of Spartanburg, SC. In collaboration with the National Music Museum (NMM) in Vermillion, South Dakota, which will soon house the Utley Collection, Dr. Sabine Klaus, curator of the Utley Collecton, will be working closely with Tom Strange, Curator and Artistic Director of the Carolina Music Museum to prepare the exhibit for opening in September of 2019.
- The Carolina Music Museum is most appreciative of the coverage given by Channel 7 to the award winning Callisto Quartet when they played the evening of May 24th at the museum. Special coverage from the special people over there at Channel 7 that resulted in an overflowing crowd at the Callisto performance that evening!
