Raising Voices Series

Tickets on sale February 1st!

In 2016, Glow introduced the Raising Voices Series, consisting of 2-3 one act concerts, cabarets and new works each spring. The goal of this series is to spark dialogue about relevant issues in the Greenville community as well as provide a megaphone for marginalized artists living in Greenville County.  More than just performances, audiences are invited to partake in free receptions pre-show, and engage with local community partners in a talk back panel after the productions.

Mosaics of music, movement and spoken word touch on the delicate and contentious relationship between humans and planet eart.

March 13 &14

The Earth Has Music celebrates the beauty of our earth while also focusing on global and local climate change and environmental deterioration. Folk musicians, opera singers, poets, and dancers touch on the immediate issues faced in South Carolina of solar energy, the effects of environmental clean up (or lack thereof) on low income areas, and the Santee Cooper nuclear scandal. It features a pastiche of dance, poetry, and folk music, as well as new compositions from Greenville composer Jon Grier.

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote. Songs of Suffrage focuses on the Women’s Suffrage Movement, acknowledging its imperfections and unfinished work, while also exploring its relevance to the issues of human rights today.  Upstate singers, actors and dancers perform personal and touching songs and stories that reflect the history of the Women’s Suffrage movement, as well as their own experiences as women in the South.
