Today, we celebrate Juneteenth, commemorating the symbolic end of enslavement in the United States on June 19th, 1865. While the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect over two years earlier in January 1863, freeing enslaved individuals within areas in rebellion against the United States, it was not always recognized or enforceable within the Confederate States until after the end of the war in April 1865. In Texas, the Emancipation Proclamation and Confederate surrender were not known, recognized, or enforceable until June 19th, 1865, when Union Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston and issued the order of abolition - finally freeing Texas's enslaved population that had been held in bondage long past the Emancipation Proclamation. This date of freedom remains symbolic, since many enslavers proceeded to detain enslaved individuals post-legal emancipation and continued veiled forms of enslavement for decades to come.

Starting in Texas and slowly disseminating across the Country, Juneteenth became an annually-celebrated event in the years following the Civil War. The jubilant celebration - America's second Independence Day - is full of food, games, parade, and music. Brass and string bands - widely popular throughout the second half of the nineteenth century - were choice ensembles to reflect the celebration of freedom and continue to be used in Juneteenth festivities today.

I'm sorry to be so forward! I was looking for piano dealers. My husband and I saved a numbered Collard and Collard grand piano in near perfect condition (middle C has some sticking issues) that was to be demolished with the beautiful, old building it was in. Felt and, keys and wood in great condition. My Sweetheart of 35 years died a month later, and I need to find someone to buy this wonderful piano, to pay my debts. I am also afraid of what will happen to it! I will pm my info. Blessings,
Thank you for highlighting Florence Price in your newsletter. I became aware of her and her music about a year ago on satellite radio and have been a huge fan ever since. I feel like she has captured a true American spirit in classical music similar to Aaron Copland, even though her music sounds much different. I have listened to several of her pieces and would love to hear more of her music played so that more people can appreciate it.
This Monday is the last Chamber Music Society of the Carolinas concert at 7:30 pm Monday, July 22 at the Fine Arts Center. Staff as indicated that a few tickets are available. Greenville Arts Today has both a review of concert 3 and a preview of the this coming last concert 4. Here are the links (click or cut and paste): https://www.gatgreenvilleartstoday.com/past-reviews/chamber-music-society-of-the-carolinas-preview-comments-program-4 https://www.gatgreenvilleartstoday.com/past-reviews/chamber-music-society-program-3-review
Have just learned about this well-kept secret!
Nice to see PDQ Bach/Peter Shickele featured as the CCM composer of the month . . . the only tri-lettered son of Bach who can still be commissioned to write pieces for budding musicians. Here’s mine: the four movement “Das Pockelbuchlein“ composed for me to play at 1920’s WurliTzer theatre pipe organs on tour, that is those equipped with Bass Drum with Attached Cymbals, Triangle, Chinese Gong, Castanet, Tambourine, Fire Gong, Xylophone, Automobile Horn, Bird Whistle, Marimba, Orchestra Bells, Chimes, Train Whistle.
NOW: SATURDAYS 10:30 TO 12:00 NOON A FREE DOCENT TOUR WITH ADMISSION! Come on down and learn interesting things about Carolina's Music History, the stringed keyboards of 1750-1850 manufactured both in Europe and the United States, as Carolina ventured into music within Plantation Houses and City Homes.
Wendy Green, here’s the page for the Carolina Music Museum. There’s a very informative article below that gives the history of how the museum came to be. Maybe one day we could do a tour of all the museums (except the children’s) on Heritage Green and then take in a play at the Greenville Little Theater. They put on some great productions and I love their intimate feel.
Amazing collection! Wonderful addition to Greenville that will be available for all to see!
Thank you so much for giving our Fine Arts Center students such a wonderful tour and history lesson today! I am very excited for you and for the contribution you are making to our local arts community. Again, I am here to help you in any way that you need. I literally live within a three minute walk from you :)
The moving team at the end of a full day!
I see the lights on in the "shop" and trust that Tom is working hard to make something magnificent. Looking for the opening. RON
