Young Accordionist in Free Concert to Celebrate Youth Art Month

March 09, 2015 | Press Releases

SPARTANBURG, SC — Chapman Cultural Center’s free weekly concert series as part of its Sundays Unplugged program is featuring all young musicians for March in celebration of National Youth Art Month. Sundays Unplugged presents a different singer-songwriter on the Center’s campus every Sunday, 2-4 p.m., for the public’s casual enjoyment, and this Sunday, March 15, features teenage accordionist Vince Demor.

Demor's musical education began at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh at the age of 3. His accordion lessons did not begin until age 7, despite continuing his studies of cello and piano until age 9, and he debuted as an accordionist at the Bulgarian Folk Festival in Pittsburgh. In 2009, Demor moved to Spartanburg to reside with his mother and sister and continued studying the cello at Converse College. He played the cello for three years at both Dorman High School and for the Carolina Youth Symphony Orchestra at Furman University. Though achieving high accolades as a cellist, he decided to focus solely on the accordion several years ago. Patrons may hear Demor playing anything from classical tunes to modern pop.

Complementing Demor’s performance is free admission to Spartanburg Art Museum and Spartanburg Regional History Museum, 1-5 p.m. Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg and the Student Galleries will also be open with free admission, both featuring works from a wide selection of talented Spartanburg County students in honor of Youth Art Month. Spartanburg Science Center will be open for a small fee.
