Columbia, SC– If you haven’t been able to experience the new, 250-seat auditorium at Richland Library Sandhills, there are three chances this month. Staff are working to showcase local and regional talent on the big stage with some family-friendly programming, free of charge.
The auditorium, which features raised seating and a walk-down stage, is the perfect spot to sit back and enjoy these Sandhills September Showstoppers:
3 – 4:30 p.m., Saturday, September 9
It’s a live concert, featuring the dynamic chamber ensemble of guitarist Marina Alexandra and flutist Teri Forscher-Milter. Duo de Vista engages audiences across the United States with a wide variety of repertoire along with a focus on artistic expression and audience immersion.
10 – 11 a.m., Saturday, September 23
Join pianist Jenny Lin as she tells a tale with music about Melody’s Mostly Musical Day. She brings her music to life with accompanying artwork and story. Also, enjoy hearing her music through a remarkable demonstration of Steinway Spirio, the world’s finest high-resolution player piano.
11 a.m. – 12 p.m., Saturday, September 30
Mr. Popper spends his time daydreaming of adventures in far-off lands while Mrs. Popper scrimps and saves to put beans on the table. When a spirited penguin arrives on their doorstep, a new horizon (and flock) opens before them! Come along for an unforgettable adventure in this 1930’s-inspired musical, based on the classic book.
The 250-seat auditorium is one of many enhanced spaces inside the new Richland Library Sandhills. The state-of-the-art facility, which now stands at 30,000 square feet, was part of a more than $10 million construction project that opened to the public back in February 2017.
