Enjoy your Sunday afternoons with superb musical experiences
You can enjoy concerts by USC’s renowned music faculty throughout the academic year. Named “Freeman Sundays @3,” the series features Carolina’s music faculty in fresh and vibrant chamber music programs that pair established masterpieces alongside brand new works.
Named for philanthropist Cornelia Freeman, in addition to bringing the community Sunday afternoons of outstanding musical experiences, the concerts also raise scholarship money for gifted music students.
The five concerts take place from September to March and the first of the series takes place on September 9. All concerts are held in the USC School of Music Recital Hall (813 Assembly St., Columbia, SC) on Sunday afternoons at 3:00 p.m.
