Cultural Council honors SCP
Collaborations with arts and community groups earned the South Carolina Philharmonic an award from the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties, presented last night at AHA! – the Arts & Humanities Awards event.
The Arts Collaboration award is a first for the SCP, and was accepted by Executive Director Rhonda Hunsinger. SCP Principal Viola Jarrod Haning provided event guests musical entertainment after the award was presented.
Highlighted arts partnerships include:
Also earning praise was the SCP’s “Music for a Cause” program, in which the SCP partners with a diverse, non-arts group of fellow non-profit 501(c)3 organizations from Richland and Lexington counties, turning concerts into “coming together” events for supporters of the SCP and partner charities. The groups are recognized in publicity and advertising for their assigned concert, are offered a display table in the lobby and given the opportunity to insert information into the program book without charge. They are also able to sell tickets as a fundraiser, keeping 75% of the proceeds for their organization.
