Music, artwork to celebrate anniversary of ‘Rite of Spring’

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Igor Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring,” the Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of music director Sarah Ioannides, will perform it at 7 p.m. Saturday in Twichell Auditorium at Converse College. In addition to the concert, patrons also can get a glimpse into the minds of students, who will exhibit their visualization of Stravinsky’s music in an art exhibit. For the past several weeks, high school art students in Spartanburg School districts 1, 2 and 7 have been asked to listen to the recorded symphony and create visual art that reflects the music through paintings, drawings or sculptures. An exhibit is on view at the Chapman Cultural Center. – Spartanburg Herald Journal
