An Evening of Divertimentos & Dressage

After resounding support from our first annual Evening of Divertimentos & Dressage in October 2019, the Spartanburg Philharmonic is thrilled to partner with Brooke USA Foothills Regional Advisory Council on the return of the upstate’s most unique music event to the Motlow Creek Equestrian Center in Campobello, SC.

Longtime Philharmonic Flutist and Regional Advisory Council Chair, Sally Frick, created the event from the seed of her combined passions: classical music and horses. It took on a life of its own, growing into a meaningful and memorable performance. Join Brooke USA Foundation and the Spartanburg Philharmonic for an engaging evening of Divertimentos & Dressage. This fundraiser will support global animal welfare and vulnerable communities who depend on their working equines for survival, as well as the continuing and expanding programs of the Spartanburg Philharmonic.

GARY CLARK JR.
Oct 26 @ 7:30 pm
Peace Center

As a teen, Clark began making a local name for himself and crafting his signature gritty-sweet vocals by jamming with adult musicians on the eclectic Texas circuit and singing in the church choir with his sisters. This on-the-job training is where he shared the stage with blues heroes like Jimmie Vaughn, Hubert Sumlin Jr, and Pinetop Perkins. Influenced by musical kings like B.B., Albert and Freddie, the Austin-born guitar prodigy quickly became a multi-instrumentalist driven by one principle: “I listen to everything…so I want to play everything.”

Called a revolution of rock and roll and a savior of blues, Clark swept the 2012-2013 annual Austin Music Awards, winning eight awards – Band of the Year, Musician of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Electric Guitarist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Blues/Soul/Funk Artist of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. In 2014 and 2015, he garnered a Blues Music Award for Contemporary Blues Male Artist of the Year. He has also collected four Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best Contemporary Blues Album for This Land.

Clark is currently working on his follow-up to This Land.
