SINHG Trip Rescheduled: Cooking with Chef Bob Waggoner – December 9th

He was knighted with L’Odre du Merite Agricole’ from the French Government and has received numerous awards here in the United States.

Opera Lite resumes with Norma October 27

unnamedOpera Lite returns after Matthew’s departure.


Beginning in 2002, the intriguing world of opera – its history, development over 400 years, cultural context, and performance – has been presented on Seabrook Island during the fall and winter months. Many residents and guests have enjoyed these sessions. But it is hoped that many more, perhaps unaware of their existence, will choose to include them in their Island activities.

Each opera is self-contained in the 90 minute session with the opera shown in an abridged fashion featuring the high points. Each week brings a different production with the works ranging from current to vintage. These sessions are informal and fun with performances supplemented by text subtitles in English. The voices and acting are amazing. You may be surprised how dramatic and enjoyable this art form can be. All sessions are FREE and previous exposure/knowledge of opera is not necessary. Indeed, newcomers are encouraged to give it a try.

Join us on Thursday, October 27, from 3:30PM to 5:00PM as we resume the series with Norma.
