2024-2025 SEASON

Join us for a year of exceptional performances as we celebrate the University of South Carolina School of Music’s centennial! Sing Thy High Praise: 100 Years of Music at Carolina is a year-long celebration of the school, its people (past, present and future), and the influence it has had on so many people for the past century. In the spirit of this celebration, our season showcases School of Music students, faculty and alumni.

In addition to its five 2024-24 season concerts, fans can hear the USC Symphony Orchestra perform at the USC School of Music Centennial Celebration Concert on Friday, September 13, 2024, at 7:30 p.m. at the Koger Center for the Arts. Tickets will be sold separately for this event.

We are also excited to announce the University of South Carolina is presenting Joffrey Ballet in performance with Betsy Blackman Dance Company and the USC Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, April 5, 2025 at the Koger Center for the Arts. A pre-sale for this extraordinary night will be offered exclusively to USC Symphony Orchestra season ticket subscribers!

All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m.
Join us at 6:45 p.m. in the Koger Center lobby for pre-concert talks with conductor Scott Weiss.
