The South Carolina Philharmonic

The South Carolina Philharmonic (SCP), entertains, educates, enriches and excites diverse audiences through live symphonic music. As the Midlands’ only professional orchestra, the SCP is a non-profit 501c3 that has served the community’s needs for cultural development and education and entertainment since 1964. The introduction of Music Director Morihiko Nakahara in 2008/2009 ushered in a new era of artistic excellence that has allowed the orchestra to move forward and become the Midlands’ pre-eminent performing arts organization. The SCP believes strongly that exposure to the arts is an essential element in helping people realize their full potential, connect to others in the community and introduce them to new cultural experiences through unique social offerings. The SCP has a vision to see lives changed through the transformative power of music and has established education and outreach programs designed specifically to engage and educate the diverse groups throughout the Midlands.
