Piccolo Spoleto and Spoleto Festival USA
May 23 to June 8, 2014
Produced and directed by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs since 1979, Piccolo Spoleto is the official outreach program of Spoleto Festival USA. Piccolo’s mission is to provide access to the Spoleto Festival USA experience for everyone, regardless of their economic, social or physical circumstances and to provide the opportunity for excellent local and regional artists, writers and performers to be showcased in the Piccolo Spoleto Festival venues.
The combination of historic Charleston’s old European charm and the world-class Spoleto Festival USA together produce a unique and impactful synergy for all who come to the city by the sea to experience this magnificent international multi-arts festival. But what really adds the ingredient of magic to the mix is Piccolo Spoleto, which provides access to the festival for every person, especially children.
Focusing primarily on artists of the Southeast region, Piccolo Spoleto is the perfect complement to the international scope of its parent festival and its 700 events in 17 days, as Charleston is transformed into an exhilarating celebration of performing, literary and visual arts. Piccolo Spoleto’s traditional program offerings include visual arts exhibits, classical music, jazz, dance, theatre, poetry readings, children’s activities, choral music, ethnic cultural presentations, crafts and film.
Title sponsors of the Piccolo Spoleto Festival are Boeing, Publix and Publix Super Markets Charities. For a ticket brochure and information on Piccolo Spoleto, call the Office of Cultural Affairs at (843) 724- 7305 or visit www.PiccoloSpoleto.com.
