As Spoleto and Piccolo Spoleto approach the finish line, the festivities are still in full-swing. Today, enjoy a Saturday full of free visual and performing art, courtesy of Piccolo Spoleto.
Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the Dock Street Theatre Drawing Room is open to the public and bursting at the seams with Carol Ezell-Gilson’s exquisite, acrylic representations of stained glass windows.
This exhibit, “Sacred Windows,” is inspired by the windows of many of Charleston’s historic, religious institutes. It is yet another opportunity to open up a world of local art to your kids.
After an afternoon of stained glass, enjoy an evening of music. At 5 p.m., the rhythm of the Lemira Elementary School Percussion Ensemble will pulsate through Hampton Park.
This group, made up of preschool through fifth-grade students, plays beats from a variety of genres. Expose your kids to drumline, classical, and jazz courtesy of this talented ensemble.
Before you head to Hampton Park, check out Lemira on YouTube and get your kids excited about percussion.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Carol Ezell-Gilson Invitational: “Sacred Windows,” 10 a.m.-2 p.m. (festival hours), 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, through June 29, Dock Street Theatre Drawing Room, 135 Church St.; Lemira Percussion Ensemble, 5 p.m. June 9, Hampton Park.
