Street Music Returns to Downtown Spartanburg!

March 27, 2018 | Features

Chapman Cultural Center is excited to announce that the street music series will be returning to the Spartanburg Downtown Cultural District the first week of April! 

The Street Music Series was launched in August 2017 and ran for 13 weekswith resounding success. In that time, the Cultural District hosted over 145 gigs including 9 genres of music and over 1,800 people stopped to enjoy along Main Street in Spartanburg. Weekly surveys showed that the series attracted a diverse audience and that people were willing to donate to local musicians to keep them performing.

Local musician, April Bennett of April B. & The Cool, said: "The series is important because art is important. Just like the murals, lightbulbs, and all the other cool sculptures in Downtown Spartanburg, the music of street musicians paint sonic pictures that were both welcomed and admired by passersby."

Local musicians will be set up on the sidewalk in four locations along East and West Main Street in downtown Spartanburg starting the first week of April and continuing through October. Performances will be happening every Wednesday - Friday from 5:00 - 7:00 pm and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. -1:30 p.m.
