We hold our RMA Club Meetings on the third Thursday of each month at 7:30 pm, except December and August. We meet at the Roper Mountain Science Center in Greenville SC, on the top floor of the Wilkins Conference Center next to the Charles E. Daniel Observatory.
Our meetings are free of charge, open to visitors, and all levels of interest are welcome. An astronomy related topic is presented at every meeting either by a member or guest speaker. Questions and discussion are a part of our meetings.
Grand Ole Opry star John Conlee with his live band will be performing hits such as “Rose Colored Glasses,” “Miss Emily’s Picture” and “Backside of Thirty” on Friday, March 20, at 7 PM at the Younts Center for Performing Arts in Fountain Inn, SC.
Foothills Philharmonicpresents its woodwind quintet in performance at Greer Center for the Arts. Featuring woodwind quintet favorites, this concert promises to be a very enjoyable evening at the brand new Greer Center for the Arts near Trade Street in Greer. Please put this addition to our season on your calendar! We would love to see you there!
The 2019-20 Chamber Concert Series is a new concert series featuring the different chamber groups and soloists of Foothills Philharmonic, and is an opportunity for our audience to enjoy chamber music in an intimate setting. As with our Main stage concert series, all concerts are free and open to the public.
The Ballroom Dance Center is known and recognized across the Southeast and beyond for its Broadway-style theatrical productions featuring both professional and student cast members. Few dance studios in the country offer creative, themed showcases that incorporate music, dance, film, storytelling, history and theater. Drawing on her lifelong love of history and humanities, Emilie Tobias, the studio’s owner and a senior instructor, writes and directs all of the shows for The Ballroom Dance Center. She has an unique background and skill set and uses these talents to present ballroom shows that transcend a routine dance recital.
Another wonderful aspect of the shows at The Ballroom Dance Center is that they appeal to all ages, and the Cats and Dogs showcase will be no different. From the six to seven-year-old child in the audience to the mature adult, theses shows transcend time and generations. They allow us as dancers to cross generational lines and touch people, both metaphorically and literally from the dance floor, and bring joy to people as we share in this magnificent form of art called dance.
We hope you will make plans to join us for one of these shows as we salute our furry friends who have starred in songs and films and reside in our hearts!
