The Project Continues!

Good news today from the South Carolina Arts Commission: their Folklife and Traditional Arts Panel has agreed to fund the next phase of the Orangeburg Music Project! Early this fall, Project Director Dr. Peter Hoesing will be interviewing candidates to become new research assistants on the Project. We will continue survey work in Orangeburg County and move forward in our efforts to build relationships with an increasing number of community partners.
