A Uniquely Stunning Event

Our signature special event, is now on a bigger stage - the Tryon Equestrian Center. Join us for an exciting evening of live music and freestyle dressage benefiting the Spartanburg Philharmonic and the Brooke USA Foundation. Now in its 3rd year, the Indoor Arena at Tryon International Equestrian Center will host an evening of music and freestyle dressage. The Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra will accompany Grand Prix horses and their highly accomplished riders, making Divertimentos and Dressage the event you have been waiting to experience.

Longtime Philharmonic Flutist and Regional Advisory Council Chair, Sally Frick, created the event from the seed of her combined passions: classical music and horses. It took on a life of its own, growing into a meaningful and memorable performance. Join Brooke USA Foundation and the Spartanburg Philharmonic for an engaging evening of Divertimentos and Dressage. This fundraiser will support global animal welfare and vulnerable communities who depend on their working equines for survival, as well as the continuing and expanding programs of the Spartanburg Philharmonic.
