SPARTANBURG – Chapman Cultural Center is home to visual and performing arts, science, and history, and brings people together every Sunday to enjoy them all in a casual and cultural environment. Its weekly Sundays Unplugged program allows people to experience art galleries and the history museum with free admission, 1-5 p.m., and free concerts by regional singer-songwriters, 2-4 p.m. This Sunday, Sept. 27, pop/alternative musician Anna V performs.
Born and raised in Richmond, VA, Anna V began her musical studies at the age of 7 with a focus on piano and vocal performance. Early influences from the band Queen and Broadway musicals nurtured a desire to incorporate performance art into her shows. As a classically trained musician, Anna V filled the role of vocalist and bassist in several local bands before making her solo debut in recent years. Her original songs feature eclectic melodies, combining classical training with “ethereal melancholia” to create what she describes as “macabre electropop,” inspired by metal, industrial, and even ‘80s new wave genres. As a singer-songwriter living in Greenville and performing throughout the southeast, Anna V will perform several songs this Sunday from her debut LP that tells the story of her life “with a twist of southern gothic.”
Also, beginning at 3 p.m., the Spartanburg Little Theatre will complete its third and final weekend of Mary Poppins in Chapman Cultural Center’s theater. Tickets are $30 per adult, $27 per senior, and $20 per student with valid identification.
Sundays Unplugged is a program of The Arts Partnership of Greater Spartanburg, the administrative non-profit agency that owns and operates Chapman Cultural Center and provides cultural leadership throughout Spartanburg County.
