SCP ensemble heads to Camden for free concert
The South Carolina Philharmonic continues the popular “Where in the Midlands is Morihiko?” concert series in Camden Tuesday, Jan. 11 from noon to 1 p.m. at KershawHealth Medical Center.
A woodwind and string ensemble made up of SCP musicians is to perform. The free concert is open to the public and takes place in the hospital’s main lobby. Visitors are asked to use the Haile Street main entrance.
“Where in the Midlands is Morihiko?” is an outreach initiative of the SCP funded by the Pierrine & Hootie Johnson Fund through the Central Carolina Community Foundation. A $10,000 grant allows Music Director Morihiko Nakahara and small ensembles of SCP musicians to venture into the community to perform free, one-hour public concerts around the Midlands leading up to each 2010/2011 Masterworks Series concert.
Founded in 1913 as the Camden Hospital, KershawHealth is today a comprehensive community healthcare system serving the people of Kershaw County and surrounding communities. Anchored by its medical center in Camden, the system includes outpatient centers, an urgent care center, physician practices, clinics, and physical rehabilitation centers across the county. Strategic partnerships with both medical schools in South Carolina and with specialty practices in Columbia enable KershawHealth to provide a level of care not often found in a community healthcare setting.
