 By taking chamber ensembles to various bars and restaurants in the Midlands in 2022, the SC Phil expanded its outreach to hundreds of music-lovers seeking classical fare in untraditional spaces. The Chamber Crawl series brought performances to Craft & Draft (Irmo), River Rat Brewery, The War Mouth and Hazelwood Brewery in 2022. Due to the success of the series, the organization has made it a fixture in its outreach programs.

Loveland Coffee will be a new venue for the Chamber Crawl series, and the second concert of the series to take place in Irmo. 

The Chamber Crawl series serves SC Phil’s ongoing goal to make classical musical accessible and unbutton the perception that the experience may be stuffy. “Music is universal in the way it connects with people,” said Susan Cafferty. “This series is a great opportunity to make more connections with the music by bringing it to Midlands bars and restaurants that are craving new experiences for their community and customers.”

General admission tickets may be bought for $20 at or by calling the SC Philharmonic at 803-771-7937.
