Catching the Last Bits of The Spoleto Festival 2012

SpoletoWe at the Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction absolutely love our city! Charleston has a unique blend of metropolitan and small-town charm, with a healthy dash of the arts thrown in. While Charleston’s arts scene is great year-round, The Spoleto Festival is the pinnacle of all things artistic in the Holy City.

If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Spoleto Festival USA yet, don’t worry! There are still plenty of opportunities for you to experience this international arts Festival between now and Sunday.

Westminster Choir

The Spoleto Festival’s choir-in-residence will be performing a wide variety of pieces, from Rachmaninoff to contemporary composer Eriks Ešenvalds Friday evening at the Church of St. Luke and St. Paul. Come sit back, relax, and let the choir’s angelic voices wash over you as you begin your weekend. Concert begins at 5 p.m. Tickets are available here.

Return to the Sea: Saltworks by Motoi Yamamoto

This site-specific art installation is on display at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the corner of Calhoun and St. Phillip Streets. Yamamoto’s intricate works are created entirely of salt, which are a symbol of purity in Japanese culture. Take a break from the mid-day heat and wander through the salt lands of Yamamoto’s mind from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m daily.

Rebirth Brass Band

Dance the night away with New Orleans’ Rebirth Brass Band in the College of Charleston Cistern this weekend! This jazz, funk, and hip-hop ensemble will be playing shows on Friday and Saturday at 9 p.m.

Charleston is absolutely alive this time of year, so even if you don’t attend a performance, be sure to take a stroll downtown and take in the atmosphere! Visit our Facbook page for all the up and coming events in Charleston!
