Founded 50 years ago, the South Carolina Philharmonic has become one of the leading orchestras in the Southeast.
In 2008/2009, the South Carolina Philharmonic entered both its 45th year and a New Era of Artistic Excellence. A six-continent, nearly three-year search resulted in Morihiko Nakahara being named the orchestra’s fifth music director.
In 2014/2015 we present a unique 50th season that appeals to, and celebrates, this unique community … our community. Like the classical standards? Get ready for Beethoven’s Fifth. Want something new? Two commissions make their world premieres here in the 2013/2014 season. Piano music? Brahms and Mozart say hello. In the mood for drama? Stravinsky and Alexander Nevsky should suffice. Feeling eclectic? Banjo superstar Bela Fleck returns to perform his own banjo concerto.
Additionally, we offer concerts and lectures in the community, educational programs in schools and out, and our “Music for a Cause” program to partner with other area charities who share our desire to heighten the strong quality of life here. Our orchestra’s roots proudly intertwine with the Midlands.
It’s a season of celebration, planned and presented to entertain, educate, enrich, and excite – but mostly thank – you.
See the S.C. Phil in action.

Ticket sales alone are not enough to keep the orchestra playing.
