Traditionally, the Kiawah Arts Council partners each spring with Charleston’s Office of Cultural Affairs to bring our community a sampling of the events they can enjoy during Piccolo Spoleto. After a two-year hiatus, we are pleased to invite you to enjoy an afternoon with Piccolo artists which we call Piccolo Preview. We are delighted to announce that internationally renowned musicians Natalia Khoma and Volodymyr Vynnysky will perform in this year’s concert, along with Charleston Opera Theater’s Saundra DeAthos Meers and Edward Brennan!
Cellist Khoma and pianist Vynnysky came to Charleston 17 years ago from Lviv, Ukraine, to teach music at the College of Charleston. They are the founders of the Charleston Music Fest, which brings the finest classical and contemporary chamber music by world-class artists to Charleston audiences. They are stunning performers, individually and as a duo, and we are fortunate that they will perform for us for our 2022 Piccolo Preview this Sunday.
Scott Watson, Director of the Office of Cultural Affairs, tells us that the focus for this year’s Piccolo Spoleto Festival will be on free and outdoor concerts and include many of the anchor events we have all come to look forward to. You can expect visual arts exhibitions, performances of classical music, jazz, dance, theater, and choral music, cultural events and community celebrations, poetry readings, children’s activities, craft shows, and film screenings. A full schedule of events will be released online in mid-May.
