SCCT has a special collaborative partnership with the Greenville Symphony Orchestra (GSO), where three times a year we bring Once Upon An Orchestra to SCCT, free-of-charge to children and their families. Once Upon An Orchestra is a performance by our Principal Teaching Artist, Traysie Amick, in SCCT’s Prisma Health Lobby. Amick presents a character from a children’s book while the GSO chamber ensemble performs classical pieces selected for each story.

These performances are recommended for grades K3 – 5th and last about 30 minutes. Reservations are NOT required!

SCCT is committed to the health and safety of our patrons, casts, crews, students, and staff. Masks are optional but recommended, especially for unvaccinated or immunocompromised. Click here to see our current precautions.
