Event Details

Last year, for the first time in 45 years, the Swannanoa Chamber Music Festival came to Greenville, choosing the Fine Arts Center as one of three performance sites for their concerts. It was such a success that the Festival is returning again this year. From June 27th through July 25th, the Fine Arts Center will be hosting five spectacular concerts. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Founded in 1970, The Swannanoa Chamber Music Festival is the premier chamber music festival of The Carolinas. This year, SCMF will present over 15 events at 3 different venues during its five-week season. The Swannanoa Chamber Music Festival is unique amongst classical music festivals for its approach to performance – which values the audience experience, and favors close, intimate interaction between listener and performer. All performance venues, artists, and ensembles that take part in SCMF share this common value.
