Young Accordionist to Play at Chapman Cultural Center, July 6

June 30, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Chapman Cultural Center provides casual, cultural entertainment every Sunday afternoon to give patrons one last chance “unplug” on the weekend. Free mini-concerts by local musicians occur weekly, and admission to most museums and galleries is free as well. These events are collectively called Sundays Unplugged. Discover, experience, and celebrate Spartanburg’s culture this Sunday, July 6, 1-5 p.m.

Local musicians perform as part of the Singer-Songwriter Concert series every Sunday, 2-4 p.m., to set the tone for the day’s activities. The series is free and open to the public, featuring different musicians and genres weekly.

Vince Demor, a 17-year-old accordionist, is this weekend’s featured musician. Demor’s musical education began at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh at the age of 3 with piano and cello, but he didn’t pick up the accordion until age 7. In ’09, he moved to Spartanburg to continue his education at Converse College. Having received high accolades as a cellist with Dorman High School, Furman University, and other groups, Demor began focusing solely on the accordion several years ago. As a member of several prestigious accordionist associations, his music education continues under the guidance of Lorraine Jennings, a nationally acclaimed accordionist, and national award-winning accordionist Bill Cosby.

As always, patrons can also enjoy free admission to Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg, Spartanburg Art Museum, Spartanburg Regional History Museum, and the Student Galleries. Spartanburg Science Center is open as well for a small fee.
