In 1977, composer Gian Carlo Moretti decided to bring the magic of Spoleto, Italy’s beloved Festival dei Due Mondi to the U.S. He chose Charleston because its wealth of theaters and churches reminded him of Spoleto, and there he began Spoleto Festival USA. Experience what has today become America’s foremost celebration of renowned international artists, Spoleto Festival USA, and its companion festival, Piccolo (“small”) Spoleto, highlighting outstanding regional artists.


• Attend two nights of Spoleto Festival USA and meet some of the musicians for an insider point of view on the festival and even a private performance.
• Learn about the fascinating history, architecture and culture of Charleston and absorb the city’s unique charm.
• Attend a Chamber Music performance at the Historic Dock Street Theater.
