How do you improve the annual, casual favorite? Add two icons of local culture: barbeque and beer. After the matinee concert with South Carolina’s Miles Hoffman (of NPR fame), join us outside for a Doc’s BBQ dinner with local beer from River Rat Brewery on tap (separate tickets required for dinner event). Just like Beethoven’s Vienna…

ROSSINI  William Tell: Overture (watch)

BERLIOZ  Harold in Italy (watch)

'Que and Brew Post-Concert Dinner

We're teaming up with long-time friends at Doc's BBQ and River Rat Brewery to take our most festive concert one-step further again (see last season's Oktoberfest party).

After the concert, you can head outside (weather permitting) for the 'Que and Brew portion of the day. For $15, 
  • enjoy pulled pork; 
  • traditional Southern sides of mac and cheese, slaw, and green beans; 
  • and banana pudding for dessert 
from Doc's BBQ and one River Rat Brewery beer (if you're at least 21) - it's a perfect mash-up of local, Southern cuisine that's united us for decades.

BBQ dinner sales are now closed - sorry! We hope you can join us next time.

Music for a Cause

Every season, since 2011, the S.C. Phil selects a group of charity partners from the Midlands to help raise awareness for their causes. Each charity is featured at one Masterworks concert during the season. Tonight’s partner is:

S.C. Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation

The South Carolina Committee of the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (SCTRF) through its Second Chances program at the Wateree River Correctional Institution offers a place of hope and renewal for retired Thoroughbred horses and prison inmates. Horses are safe, well cared for and loved at Seabiscuit Stables. The caregivers here are also renewed, learning skills and building character that will benefit their future days. SCTRF provides horses refuge from various inhumane and disheartening alternatives, while teaching inmates practical tools of the equine industry, applicable to an array of jobs in South Carolina.
