The Greenville symphony brings world-class visiting performers to Greenville to collaborate with our orchestra as guest soloists. Our Guest Artist Outreach program sends these renowned artists to interact with students in workshops, recitals and masterclasses at upstate high schools and universities. The symphony has sent guest artists to the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities, the Greenville County Fine Arts Center, Furman University, North Greenville University and other Greenville County schools.

Most Guest Artist Outreach opportunities are free and open to the public. Please send inquires to Education Manager David Kiser. Talented students from the Upstate are encouraged to contact the Education manager about appearing in a guest artist masterclass.
