Performing Artists in Residence Series

Widely known for its rich arts curriculum, Ashley Hall's Performing Artists in Residence Series offers students the unique opportunity to work side-by-side with some of the world's leading musicians. Under the direction of cellist Edward Arron, this day-long residency culminates in a public performance held in the intimate setting of the Sottile-Thompson Recital Hall on campus.

"That seriousness is more than evident at Ashley Hall were...the strings program also benefits twice a year from the mentoring of world-class cellist Edward Arron and the marvelous array of virtuosos he brings to town." -CharlestonToday.net  To read the full review, click here.

The Performing Artists in Residence Series is made possible by the generosity of a philanthropic Ashley Hall alumna.
