In 1983, a group of devoted faculty, administrators and community supporters formed the Friends of the School of Music. Among them was Carlos Moseley, whose worldwide musical connections helped establish Converse College as a venue for such eminent performers as Charles Wadsworth and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Yo-Yo Ma, Chanticleer, the Tokyo String Quartet, the Beaux Arts Trio and many others. In 2004, the Friends of the Petrie School of Music renamed our concert series the Carlos Moseley Chamber Music Series.
For decades the name Carlos Moseley has been synonymous with musical excellence. This great musician was revered for his contributions to music not only in his hometown of Spartanburg but also around the world. Carlos enjoyed a distinguished career as a concert pianist, professor, and as president of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and Chairman of the Philharmonic-Symphony Society of New York. He served on the boards of Converse College and Brevard Music Center and was awarded honorary doctoral degrees from the Juilliard School, Duke University, Wofford College and Converse College. He was also a recipient of the Order of the Palmetto, the highest honor available to a citizen of South Carolina. Most recently, Mr. Moseley was honored with a marker on the Spartanburg Music Trail.
Subscriptions to the Moseley series and additional donations to the Friends of the Petrie School of Music provide support for Converse music students and make possible an array of education activities by Moseley Series artists. These activities include master classes and open rehearsals at Converse, as well as programs at local high schools.
