    Description
    — Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra concludes its extraordinarily popular 2016-2017 "Espresso" chamber concert series on Friday, March 31, with Blue Mountain Blend. The event will start at 5:30 p.m. when doors open to the Chapman Cultural Center theater for a happy hour reception that will include beer, wine, and light snacks, all leading up to the 6:30 p.m. concert that will feature both the woodwind and brass quintets from the orchestra. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased by telephone — (864) 583-2776 — or in person at Chapman's box office Monday-Friday afternoons. Tickets are also available anytime online at ChapmanCulturalCenter.org.

    The concert will offer an enjoyable and accessible blend of music for wind and brass from familiar classics to a fresh new work. Showcasing the SPO Woodwind quintet – flute, oboe, clarinet, french horn, and bassoon – as well as the SPO Brass Quintet, this concert offers a fun and colorful experience for listeners of all ages.

    The program will range stylistically from the edgy and fun Canadian Brass arrangement of St. Louis Blues by "the father of the blues" W.C. Handy to the beautiful and well-known Flower Duet from Lakmé that audiences will immediately recognize from movies and television. The concert will culminate in a performance of a new piece of music by local composer Peter B. Kay, written for all ten instrumentalists. Cinematic visuals by the award-winning filmmaker and former HUB BUB Artist-in-Residence Jonathan Ade will accompany the live music. Filmed in Spartanburg, SC, Ade's work offers an impression of the art installations Seeing Spartanburg In A New Light that have been on display since October of 2016.

    Ticketholders will be treated to concert-inspired wines and bites provided by the Marriott of Spartanburg as well as beer specially curated by sponsor Hub City Tap House. As an added bonus, audience members will receive a limited edition shaker pint glass to take home. After the show, the audience is invited to both neighboring establishments, the Marriott and the Hub City Tap House, for special meal and drink deals.

    Tickets to the event are $25, visit http://www.chapmanculturalcenter.org/ or call 864.583.2776. Tickets may be purchased in person at the Chapman Cultural Center Box Office, 200 East Saint John St, Spartanburg SC, 29306.

    Description
    In an effort to help deliver the gift of reading to less fortunate children in the United States, The UPS Store® in Greer has launched a book donation drive for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program to benefit children in care at Miracle Hill Ministries.
    "At any given time, Miracle Hill has as many as 89 children in our three children's shelters," said Brad Holland, Director of Miracle Hill Children's Home. "Having books for these children who often come to us with nothing goes a long way toward providing thoughtful care that promotes education and fun learning."
    The UPS Store located at 2123 Old Spartanburg Rd, Greer, SC 29650 and the Greer Miracle Hill Thrift Store at 14179E West Wade Hampton Blvd, Greer, SC 29650 will be accepting new or gently used books April 1 – 29, 2017 for the BOOK DRIVE to benefit the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, a year-round initiative of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The Literacy Program, developed by The UPS Store and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation in 2008, helps purchase books for children who need it most in Greenville County. Customers may also donate monetarily online at www.toysfortots.org/literacy and learn more about the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.
    "The community's participation in the Toys for Tots Literacy Program is a key component to the success of this promotion," said The UPS Store franchisee Leigh Abdou. "This program provides us the unique opportunity to work with a nationally-recognized organization yet make an impact in our community, which is only possible because of thoughtful contributions from the people in this city."
    Since partnering with Toys for Tots to launch the Literacy Program in 2008, UPS and The UPS Store network have raised more than $3.5 million to purchase books for underprivileged children nationwide. Through the partnership, The UPS Store has distributed more than 36.8 million books to children during the holiday season, including here in the Upstate.
