Twichell Auditorium

Twichell Auditorium

Renowned for its outstanding acoustics and home to some of the most celebrated musical events in the region, Twichell Auditorium is a treasured jewel of the Spartanburg community for concerts, operas, dance and other events.

Built in 1899 and renovated in 1989 as part of Converse’s Centennial Celebration, this 1,489-seat auditorium houses a 57-rank Casavant Freres organ with 2,600+ pipes.

Named as a historic John Philip Sousa site to commemorate the many performances given by Sousa and his band in the early twentieth century, the auditorium has hosted such famed artists as Tony Bennett, Chet Atkins, George Burns, Duke Ellington, Burl Ives, Itzhak Perlman, Yo Yo Ma, and Marilyn Horne.

Greeting visitors in front of the auditorium is the graceful 8-foot bronze sculpture of legendary contralto singer and civil rights pioneer Marian Anderson, created by artist Meredith Bergmann.

For ticket information, please call the Box Office at 864.596.9724. You may also purchase tickets online.
