Musicians from the South Carolina Governor’s School for Arts and Humanities

September 17, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Friends of Music

Accent on Youth:
Musicians from the South Carolina Governor’s School for Arts and Humanities

FLAT ROCK, N.C. – Once again this year, The Episcopal Church of St. John in the Wilderness will kick off the upcoming Friends of Music series on Sunday, September 17, at 4:00pm in the Parish Hall across the street from the church. The first performance will feature an Accent on Youth with four outstanding students from the South Carolina Governor’s School for Arts and Humanities (SCGSAH). The performers will be Xavier Galloway, piano, Benjamin Stickney, piano, Kate Tolchinski, oboe and Peyton Mann, bassoon.

SCGSAH gives young emerging artists the opportunity to explore their talents in a unique arts-centered community. The state-funded school, located in Greenville, gives artistically talented students the opportunity to receive professional training in one of five arts areas: Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Music, and Visual Arts. These high school students from South Carolina also receive an intense and innovative education and exploration in the Humanities.

Sarah Yeargin, Director of Parish Communication and Administration at St. John and graduate of SCGSAH says, “The school provides pre-professional arts instruction to prepare students for careers making art that matters. The school itself is a work of art: modeled after a Tuscan village, vines crawl over wooden trellises that stretch from building to building, giving students and teachers plenty of shady space among cobblestone paths to gather outside, breath fresh air, and gain inspiration from nature. The appreciation for great art that was instilled in me there will never leave me, nor will the ideals of living in community with other passionate people who value feedback and want to leave a positive mark on the world.”

There is no charge for this event, but donations to the Friends of Music are gladly accepted. Reservations are not required. The Parish Hall is located at 1905 Greenville Highway in Flat Rock. For more information call 828-693-9783
