Nature Center in the lovely Great Room listening to music.

FENCE Executive Director Carrie Knox says, “I love the relaxed atmosphere at the FENCE concerts. The music is fun and the companionship is great. I think everyone enjoys the social time as much as the concert. The fact that these concerts are absolutely free just adds to the enjoyment.”

Many genres of music have been shared with our community there. Everything from classical music to Dixieland jazz has been presented.

The next offering will be Sunday, May 19 at 4 p.m. from cellists Dr. Brenda Leonard of North Greenville University and Lawson Academy in South Carolina and Professor Ben Smith of Montreat College in North Carolina.

CELLO TIMES TWO! puts on a fun show with music that appeals to all ages. They play classical music written specifically for two cellos as well as arrangements of popular tunes, light classics, and other music. They’ve played at the library in Spartanburg as part of their popular “Music Sandwiched In” series. They play weddings and other celebrations and of course play formal recitals, too.
