Crescendo: Hilton Head Island’s Arts Celebration

In recognition of the National Arts and Humanities Month, the Arts & Cultural Council of Hilton Head (ACCHH) is sponsoring the inaugural Crescendo! The arts, culture and history celebration will showcase the myriad of local organizations, individual artists, performers and authors.

More than 50 events — from musical performances, historical tours, gallery exhibits and everything in between — are scheduled Sept. 30 to Nov. 5. Activities range from large-scale musical performances, such as the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra’s Evening Under the Stars and “The Color Purple” at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, to more intimate events at the Jazz Corner or pop-up poetry readings hosted by the Island Writers’ Network.

“This event is our first joint program venture as an organization since Bravo in 2006”, said Natalie Hefter, ACCHH president . “We hope that everyone will come out and support the incredible arts, culture and history organizations, working artists and high-quality arts programs we have in Hilton Head and Bluffton. Our community is full of talented individuals sharing their expertise and passion with visitors and residents alike.”

National Arts and Humanities Month, first launched 30 years ago by Americans for the Arts, aims to encourage participation in the arts while raising awareness about the role the arts and humanities play in our communities and lives.

The Arts & Cultural Council of Hilton Head coordinates, promotes, communicates, and showcases arts and cultural organizations and businesses in the Hilton Head Island/Bluffton area.
