Competitive ballroom dancing inspires four Upstate women

n story by JEANNIE PUTNAM | photos PROVIDED

F

or over 14 years, “Dancing with the Stars” has brought ballroom dancing into the living rooms of houses across the country. In the Upstate, competitive ballroom dancing has allowed four women from different professional worlds to cross paths.

Dr. Anne Parker, Tammy Barber, Liz Seman and Sharon Nagy are all competitive ballroom dancers who take lessons at the Carolina Ballroom Dance Studio. After spending years sitting watching others dance at various social events and not feeling confident enough to enjoy dancing, Parker, an ophthalmologist with Carolina Cornea & Laser Center, started taking ballroom dancing lessons at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio — now the Carolina Ballroom Dance Studio — 10 years ago. “When you’re middle-aged, you don’t often try to learn a new skill from scratch,” Parker said. “Unlike ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ you don’t get kicked off the show. You get to keep having fun and getting better as you take more lessons. I stopped flying lessons because I could die and stuck with dancing. During the first year of my dancing lessons, I was taking flying lessons at the same time. I soon realized that the time commitment required for each skill was too much to do justice to both. I gave up the flying lessons after realizing that the penalty for a mistake was death — while a dancing mistake usually involved laughter.” Eventually, Parker took the next step and started competing. She currently participates in two competitions a year. In contrast, Barber, owner and chief operating officer of BarberWind Turbines LLC and Greenville County Councilwoman Seman were both introduced to the world of competitive ballroom dancing by participating in Dancing with the Carolina Stars. “I did ballet for 18 years, but it’s very different from ballroom,” Barber said. “In fact, you have to unlearn the things you have learned.” After winning Dancing with the Carolina Stars in 2015, Barber said the bug bit and she continued her lessons. She has since gone on to compete in two other competitions and won in her level.


Unlike ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ you don’t get kicked off the show. You get to keep having fun and getting better as you take more lessons.

"

Part of it is that I’m competitive by nature. I think I have always had that competitive spirit about me.

"

-Liz Seman, competitive ballroom dancer

-Dr. Anne Parker, competitive ballroom dancer According to Barber, the first day of competition starts with rhythm (Latin) style dances and competitors participate in as many as 200 heats (less than 2-minute dances) a day. “When you have rhinestone eyelashes and hair extensions, your sport is dance,” Barber said. While Seman started ballroom dancing by competing in Dancing with the Carolina Stars in 2014, she did not initially plan to continue with it. “I went into it (Dancing with the Carolina Stars in 2014) thinking I’m going to do the event, learn the one dance and that was going to be it,” Seman said. “I don’t have a dance background at all. I was a cheerleader in high school.” After the competition, Seman started taking lessons at Carolina Ballroom Dance Studio and eventually began to

LEARN TO WHERE;

compete. For her, it was a natural progression that came out of taking lessons. Seman said that by planning to compete, her lessons became purposeful. “Part of it is that I’m competitive by nature,” Seman said. “I’ve run two marathons. I’ve run a bunch of half-marathons. I competed in high school sports. I think I have always had that competitive spirit about me.” Seman has participated in seven competitions and finished first in smooth — waltz, tango and foxtrot — and rhythm categories five times. Like Barber, Nagy, associate provost for global engagement at Clemson University, had a dance background before starting ballroom dancing lessons. According to Nagy, she was introduced to paired dancing ( jitterbug and swing dance) at an early age because her parents were dancers that met at a jitterbug competition in the 1950s in Staten Island, New York.

-Tammy Barber, competitive ballroom dancer

-Sharon Nagy, competitive ballroom dancer Although she grew up dancing, she didn’t take her first ballroom class until 2002, when she was in Bahrain researching labor migration in the Arabian Gulf states. Nagy, who is an anthropologist, was working with Filipino migrants and was looking for ways to spend time with the community. “The Filipino community center offered ballroom classes,” Nagy said. “I did ballroom and salsa there. She continued with salsa dancing when she returned to Chicago, but didn’t revisit ballroom dancing until she moved to Greenville in 2013. For Nagy, going from lessons to competing in dance was natural because she has two older sisters, so she has been competing “all her life,” she said. During her first competition in February 2016, she won top newcomer, which encouraged her to keep coming back. “It’s the one activity that I do for stress release,” Nagy said. “It’s the one

activity where you simply cannot think about anything else while you are doing it, so I don’t think about work while I’m doing it.” All four women said that ballroom dancing is a sport that has allowed them to meet people that they would not have met anywhere else. “It’s inspiring to see that you can do this a really long time,” Seman said. “(There are) lots of people who are significantly older or younger than me in the studio. If you stay healthy and active, you can still do it. There aren’t many sports that allow you to do that.”

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // DECEMBER 6

“Daddy, that’s a cumulus cloud,” 4-year-old Mason Justus said, as he pointed to the sky. The apple didn’t far fall from the tree for Chris Justus’ kids. Even though he’s the new chief meteorologist for WYFF television in Greenville, his sons may be close on his heels and coming after that job in the future. “I must be doing something right,” Justus said, smiling in obvious proud dad mode. Justus grew up in Hendersonville, North Carolina, on his family’s apple orchard, which proved to be the catalyst when it came to his interest in weather. He wanted to know how different weather patterns affected the apples, which is an integral part of running an orchard. Even from a very young age, his interest in meteorology was apparent; he recalled doing mock weather reports for his family in the evenings. When it came time for college, he continued on that path at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. After graduation, he worked in Savannah, Georgia, for a local television station as their weather guy. He loved it and knew he’d found his calling. He also found his wife, Lauren, there; she worked at the same station. Justus proposed on the 50-yard line at the Bulldogs stadium in Georgia, having concocted a fake interview with the quarterback of the team, Aaron Murray, and arranging for Lauren to be there for the shot. He surprised her by showing up instead of the hotshot quarterback, got down on one knee and popped the question.

“Do I still get to interview Aaron Murray?” Lauren asked half-jokingly after she accepted Chris’ proposal. They’ve been married for more than seven years and have two sons, Mason, 4, and Parker, 2. The couple moved several times, with stints in Savannah, Georgia, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Nashville, Tennessee. Finally, they returned back home to the Upstate. Justus knew he wanted to come back to the area — his parents still run the orchard and his brother and family live there as well — so jumped on the chance when a meteorologist position came up at WYFF in 2013. The demands of the chief meteorologist job are more intense than what may appear on television or a Facebook Live segment. Science and researched predictions are all part of what makes up the day-to-day operations. “Especially during a hurricane or snowstorm, we have new models every two to three hours and the forecast can change,” Justus said. “Weather is our life, and it’s never boring.” Since taking the job, Justus has jumped on the Facebook video bandwagon, doing frequent live streams from his desk at the office or at home if need be. He thinks it is a great way to interact with viewers and answer questions, finding ways to help them with the information they need for scheduling their own lives. “Social media has opened the doors to a more tailor-made forecast where I can look closer at communities and specific events that viewers have planned,” Justus said. “It’s a fun part of the job and I try to be as helpful as possible.” At home, Lauren lets the boys watch their father on television, a unique way to feel connected to him while not all together as a family. Before starting a family, Lauren worked in public relations in Greenville, having jumped over from in front of the camera to behind the scenes.

“My job was to basically make NOMA Square a thing,” she said, smiling brightly. Mission accomplished. Now she juggles the two boys while doing marketing for Justus Orchards during the busy fall season. Being married to the weatherman does have its advantages. Before expanding their family, the couple lived in Nashville, Tennessee, for a bit, where he worked for a local television station doing weather. When a severe weather front moved in, threatening tornadoes, Justus called Lauren and told her to immediately take cover. “There I was, in the bathtub wearing a helmet,” she said. “The outskirts of the city were hit with 24 tornadoes but thankfully they didn’t come near us, yet I was prepared.” Justus was on the air for over seven hours straight that day, sleeping on an air mattress and checking in with Lauren to make sure she was safe. Snowstorms in the Upstate sometimes brings those same demands, but nevertheless, Justus said wintertime is his favorite season. Now in Greenville and back home near his family, Justus said he can’t imagine a more perfect place to raise his children and help the community with its most common topic of conversation: the weather. “I hope to stay here for a very long time,” Justus said. “Maybe my family will be the next generation of chief meteorologists in Greenville.”

A few short years ago, when LeAundrea Robinson found herself “broke, broken and homeless,” she made a promise that when she found her way back, she would bring others with her. In doing so, she discovered her voice, and acquired the skills to embark on a rewarding career. Robinson found the allies she needed to lift herself and her family out of poverty—volunteers in the local chapter of the Circles program, sponsored by Buncombe Street United Methodist Church and SHARE. Honoring her commitment to give back, she signed up for two years in United Way’s AmeriCorps national service program. Her job was to work at Greenville Tech’s Financial Education Center, assisting low-income students with budgeting and financial literacy.

Crisis doesn’t have a nine-to-five timetable. You see students who look like you and me, but they are sleeping in their cars. You have to reconsider what you think poverty is.” -LeAundrea Robinson, volunteer, United Way’s AmeriCorps “It was a chance to give back to the community that had poured into me,” Robinson said. “My first student in crisis was a single mother with five kids and one on the way who was struggling to stay in a nursing program. Because I had been through a struggle, I have connections in the community. I connected her with resources and we were able to get her the help she needed. That was like a light going on for me.” Robinson surpassed her contractual hours with AmeriCorps, performing case-management duties and helping students get emergency services like housing and food. GTC’s Care Corner provided essential needs like diapers and car seats. Her own experience with poverty opened her eyes to the needs of the students she was helping. “Crisis doesn’t have a nine-to-five timetable,” she said. “You see students who look like you and me, but they are sleeping in their cars. You have to recon-

sider what you think poverty is.” Robinson worked to create innovative solutions and partnerships to remove barriers that could have prevented students from staying in school. Her efforts paid off in increased retention and over $500,000 in contributions. She was recognized as the 2019 AmeriCorps Member of the Year and presented with the 2019 South Carolina Governor’s Volunteer Award. The skills she developed in her AmeriCorps job led to a staff position at Greenville Tech, where she has the opportunity to guide and inspire students every day. In August, she was hired to be one of two academic coordinators for GTC’s newly launched African American Male Scholars Initiative. “I’m grateful for what my service was able to do to help others, and the greatest reward is to be part of this work for the long term,” she said. “It has opened up doors for me, so we all win.” National Service Opportunities like United Way’s AmeriCorps, VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) are a life-changing way to serve your community and gain skills and knowledge. Members serve for one year and receive a small stipend. During their year of service, they work to strengthen nonprofits through direct or indirect service. These programs are a great opportunity for a recent college graduate or someone looking to change their career.

Fostering Great Ideas holds fifth annual fundraiser

Greenville veteran receives new roof installed by Guy Roofing n story by GEORGIA GAY | photo PROVIDED

More than 300 guests gathered Oct. 24 for the fifth annual fundraiser for Fostering Great Ideas Great Big Benefit Bash. The organization met its fundraising goal of $160,000. As part of the evening program, guests learned about the organization from CEO David White. Among its several programs, FGI provides mentors, tutors and college advocates for children and youth in foster care, so they can succeed both academically and emotionally. The audience heard first-hand from alumni of foster care, who spoke of how

the organization has affected them as individuals. Over 300 children in 2019 have been served by FGI with these one-to-one relationships, according to the organization. FGI is a nonprofit whose mission is to improve the lives of children as they struggle in foster care. Their work focuses on the needs of the children: restore their families to health; support them emotionally and academically; and mobilize communities to act on behalf of them.

Bobby Hogan, a U.S. Army veteran from Greenville, received a new roof on Monday, Nov. 25 from The Owens Corning Foundation, with labor donated by Guy Roofing, an Owens Corning platinum roofing contractor. Owens Corning awards platinumpreferred-contractor certification to an elite group of roofing contractors who demonstrate superior installation skills. Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County, Hogan was selected and approved as the recipient for the roof replacement because his roof was deteriorating. Hogan is an army veteran who served from 1980-92 and achieved the rank of sergeant. After 1992, when Hogan left, he remained in the Army Reserve for eight years.

The Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project is a nationwide effort to show gratitude and honor the veterans who serve and the families who support them, according to a press release. Since the inception of this program in 2016, more than 150 military members have received new roofs.

Community members will have an opportunity to light up the night – and the hearts of hospitalized children – at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, when Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Upstate brings Good Night Lights to Greenville. The Upstate event will feature milk and cookies, gifts and a tree lighting – but, at its core, it’s essentially a conversation of lights, with community members shining flashlights toward windows of pediatric patients who can then shine back their own lights.

For children and families especially, it can be tough to be hospitalized – but it’s even tougher over the holidays.” -Robin LaCroix, medical director, Children’s Hospital–Upstate “For children and families especially, it can be tough to be hospitalized – but it’s even tougher over the holidays,” Robin LaCroix, medical director of Children’s Hospital–Upstate said. “This simple gesture is a great way for our community to send well wishes and positive thoughts as we, literally, brighten the holidays for our families.” The Sunday event opens with a milk and cookie drop-in for community members and their families at Greenville Memorial Hospital’s Sharupa Community Room. Children who are

hospitalized will also be having their own treats from the Children’s Hospital playrooms or in their own rooms. At 6:30 p.m., flashlights, glow sticks, cell phone lights and police-car lights will shine from in front of Greenville Memorial Hospital, with patients and families answering in turn from the fifth and six floors of the Children’s Hospital. Hospitalized children will be provided flashlights, while community members are encouraged to bring flashlights from home or use their cellphone lights. At 6:45 p.m., two ambassadors from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals will help close out the event by leading the gathered crowd in a count down to light the approximately 20-foot Christmas tree in front of Greenville Memorial Hospital. “We’re thrilled to do to this for our hospitalized families as well as our greater communities,” Taylor Stathes, manager of child life and special programs said. “It’s just a great way to show our support outside of the typical work day.” Anyone wishing to bring donations to hospitalized children are encouraged to bring books, Matchbook cars, Play-doh or UNO cards. All gifts must be new and unused. Also popular with families are $5-$10 gift cards to nearby restaurants or businesses.

Roper Mountain has a hidden history The Roper Mountain area is usually considered the area located between Pelham and Woodruff Roads. Today, the area is mainly known for the iconic Roper Mountain Science Center located on top of the mountain. However, there is a long forgotten history behind the acquisition and organization of the modern day Science Center.

The "hidden, modern history" of Roper Mountain

In 1966, Gov. Robert McNair created the Tricentennial Commission to oversee statewide events and projects to celebrate 1970, the year that marked the 300th anniversary of the 1670 founding of Charles Towne, the first permanent settlement in the colony of South Carolina. The newly formed commission decided to construct three Tricentennial Exposition Parks across the state, with each park featuring a dominant theme from one of the centuries in the 300-year period of the state’s history. The Piedmont Exposition Park in Greenville was to sit on top of Roper Mountain, and highlight the growth of manufacturing across the state. In 1968, the famous architect and inventor Buckminster Fuller consulted with several local architects and developed a final design that called for an open-air museum with five floors of exhibits, all enclosed by a gigantic cube like structure known as a Tetron. In 1969 construction began and almost immediately began suffering from delays, cost overages and design problems. On July 4, 1970 the museum opened despite ongoing construction to the public. However the design flaws and structure issues continued to plague the site until Gov. John West stopped construction in 1971 and after a feasibility study was completed, the commis-

sion deemed the park's design and structure a complete failure – so much so, Fuller's Tetron was completely removed from the site. Greenville County Schools purchased the site in 1974, but it would be a decade later before the Science Center would open with a horticulture facility as it's first offering.

Charles E. Daniel Observatory houses a telescope originally built for Princeton University in 1882 The observatory’s 23-inch refractor telescope, which is the eighth largest of its kind in the nation, allows visitors to view the rings of Saturn and polar ice caps of Mars. Built by the Massachusetts-based company, Alvan Clark and Sons, in 1882 for Princeton University, the telescope

was used by various astronomers, including Henry Norris Russell, who developed the theory of how stars evolve. In 1933, Pittsburgh’s J.W. Fecker Company rebuilt the telescope entirely and constructed a heavier mounting. The U.S. Naval Observatory purchased the instrument in 1964 to precisely measure star positions. However, federal funding cuts prevented its use. In 1978, the Navy sold the telescope to the Greenville County School District for the cost of shipping from Arizona. The telescope, which was disassembled for transportation, arrived in Greenville in September 1978. The school district immediately placed the expensive, fragile lens in a safe at the district office. The telescope’s body was placed in a warehouse until 1985, when maintenance crews finally started assembling the telescope’s 23-ton body at the Textile Hall building in downtown Greenville. Without instructions and with only a picture to go by, the school district eventually had to recruit the help of famous optics consultant Dick Nelson and Furman University physics professor Tommy Goldsmith to help maintenance crews reassemble the frame. With funds from the Charles E. Daniel Family Foundation, the school district began constructing a dome observatory at Roper Mountain to house the telescope. The telescope, in service since 1986, is now used for student astronomy classes, teacher workshops and public observations. Each Friday evening, the observatory is open from 7:00-10:00 p.m. for public observation, in conjunction with programs shown in the planetarium.

FOREST KITCHEN DESIGN STUDIO

When we first engage potential clients in our studio, we have an initial discussion that should feel to them like a natural interview process. Clients usually have at least a vague idea of how they want their kitchen to serve them. Our job is to delineate those variables and make them become gradual, concrete realities. After several meetings and once things are decided, one question consistently arises from our clients: “Joel, is what I’m picking going to look dated in _______ years?” It’s a heart-felt question, and it demands a careful, nuanced answer. I’ll illustrate – mid-century modern décor is popular right now. It is also polarizing – you either love it or you just really don’t get it. No matter which side of the fence you fall, you cannot deny the aesthetic qualities of a well-done, authentic mid-century modern home. This is the main reason why the mid-century modern aesthetic continues into today’s market. Classic cars are a good example. Even in recent decades, certain auto manufacturers have been able to design lasting favorites by tapping into good looks and proportions for some car models. If you want to create a kitchen space that you will enjoy for life, in addition to

IF YOU WANT TO CREATE A KITCHEN SPACE THAT YOU WILL ENJOY FOR LIFE, IN ADDITION TO MAKING IT FUNCTIONAL, MAKE IT CLASSICALLY BEAUTIFUL. making it functional, make it classically beautiful. Beauty really isn’t just in the eye of the beholder. Beauty is an objective truth made manifest by well-designed things. A beautiful kitchen may show a bit of age after many years, but should continue to bring joy through its timeless, considerate design.

Three productions of ‘The Nutcracker’ pirouette onto stage in Greenville n story by PAUL HYDE | photos PROVIDED

At Christmastime, nature may be in retreat, but the arts are in full bloom. For dance fans, Greenville offers no fewer than three productions of the beloved ballet “The Nutcracker,” about a young woman, Clara, who journeys to a magical land. Each staging is different, but all three ballet companies go all out, putting scores of dancers on stage and bringing to town guest soloists from the world’s major ballet companies.

The world doesn’t care about his backstory. The bills don’t care if the money can can’t be found. Hunger doesn’t care that she’s just a little girl. The thermometer doesn’t care if the shelter is full. The calendar doesn’t care if there are presents to open. Fate doesn’t care if families stay together. The world doesn’t care if there’s more hurt than help, more despair than hope, or more bad than good. But thankfully, you do. Every day, nearly 40 million hardworking Americans battle to escape poverty. Help them win. Join the #FightForGood and donate today at SalvationArmyGreenville.org

INTERNATIONAL BALLET

First to pirouette onto stage will be the International Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker,” Dec. 6-8 at the Peace Center. The staging features two returning guest artists: Cara Marie Gary of the Joffrey Ballet and Taras Domitro, formerly with the San Francisco Ballet. Gary is one of International Ballet’s success stories: Born in Belton, Gary received her training at International Ballet and now dances with one of the world’s top companies, the Chicago-based Joffrey Ballet. International Ballet, with 65 dancers on stage, collaborates in this production with the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Edvard Tchivzhel, and a 20-voice choir as well. Sebastian Binet, a guest dancer with International Ballet this season, will handle several dazzling solos in this staging. “We’ve got a very strong soloist cast,” said Lena Forster, president and founder of International Ballet. With choreography by Ukrainian-born Vlada Kysselova (artistic director of International Ballet) and Hennadii Bespechnyi, the production traces its roots back to Russian and Ukrainian dance tradition. The costumes and sets were created at the opera house in Kiev. “The costumes are just stunning,” Forster said.

CAROLINA BALLET THEATRE

Guest artists for Carolina Ballet Theatre’s “The Nutcracker” will be Herman Cornejo, a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre, and Oksana Maslova, a principal dancer with Pennsylvania Ballet. “The Nutcracker” offers “everything that makes the holiday season special,” said Anita Pacylowski, CBT associate artistic director. CBT’s “Nutcracker,” Dec. 13-14 at the Peace Center, is subtitled “Once Upon a Time in Greenville” and it takes place in a magical land called, you guessed it, Greenville. The sets spotlight the Liberty Bridge, Main Street and the Shoeless Joe Jackson statue, among other Greenville sights. Some dancers portray Greenville’s Mice on Main. “It brings in iconic landmarks in Greenville,” Pacylowski said. The choreography is by Hernan Justo, CBT’s artistic director who will celebrate his 20th anniversary with the company next year. More than 130 dancers will participate in the production — though all dancers are not on stage at the same time. CBT’s youngest dancers, playing little angels, are 5 years old.

GREENVILLE BALLET

It’s the 35th year for the longest-established “Nutcracker” in Greenville. About 90 dancers will be on stage for Greenville Ballet’s “The Nutcracker,” 3 p.m. Dec. 14 at McAlister Auditorium on the campus of Furman University. The production will feature two stars of the Dance Theatre of Harlem: Choong Hoon Lee and Crystal Serrano. In addition, Gavin Stewart, founder of the Stewart/Owen Dance in North Carolina, will appear as a soloist. Choreography is by Andrew Kuharsky, director of Greenville Ballet, with additional choreography by Merry Kuharsky, co-director of Greenville Ballet. The staging is inspired by the choreography of George Balanchine for the New York City Ballet. “It’s a traditional, beautifully choreographed staging, and it’s got the most ornate and beautiful sets,” said Merry Kuharsky. “It’s a warm, charming story that really appeals to families.” A special performance for school groups is sold out, but tickets are available for the Dec. 14 performance.

Dec. 14 | 3:00pm | $22-$26 TICKETMASTER.COM

Tired of Christmas plays? “Every Brilliant Thing” is just the performance for you. All the way from the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Rick Dildine will be directing this performance that contains only one actor, David Lee Nelson. He will perform from Dec. 5-15 at The Warehouse Theatre. Dildine said he fell in love with the script after a colleague suggested he read the play. Its simplicity, humor and relevance were striking to him, he said. While the play covers a heavy topic, humor is dispersed throughout, which Dildine said makes the play approachable. “There is great truth in humor and this is a play where you can connect with it personally,” he said. “Every Brilliant Thing” follows the journey of a man looking back on his childhood, when his mother was depressed and attempted suicide. To cheer her up, the child wrote a list of every cool and amazing thing about the world.

» DEC. 5-15 | TIMES VARY » THE WAREHOUSE THEATRE » $20/GENERAL | $10/SUBSCRIBERS WAREHOUSETHEATRE.COM The list follows the man throughout his life. “The play is a story of him completing the list and focuses on his own struggles with depression,” Nelson said. Nelson says the play has been in the works since October, but the idea was sparked over a year ago. “It was a random set of circumstances, meeting David Nelson and connecting over the script,” Dildine said. The story is told simply, with no set used and few props involved. “It is an exciting way to perform and gets back to the very beginning of story telling,” Nelson said. The audience is able to go on a journey with Nelson, learning it is OK to not be OK. “People come in and are instantly put into an unexpected situation,” Dildine said.

It is an exciting way to perform and gets back to the very beginning of story telling.” -David Lee Nelson, actor This is the first performance of “Every Brilliant Thing” in Greenville. “This play helps you recognize the beautiful things in this world, because it can be so sad,” Nelson said.

The paintings assembled in this traveling exhibition are a memorial tribute to her and reflect her vibrant spirit and love of nature, horses, and her ever-present dogs. Phyllis Wyeth was a noted philanthropist, conservationist, environmentalist, arts supporter, accomplished horsewoman, and a staunch advocate for the rights of those with disabilities. When you visit the GCMA, you’ll discover a carefully curated selection of American art, including the world’s largest public collection of watercolors by Andrew Wyeth, one of the world’s best institutional collections of works by our country’s most acclaimed living artist, Jasper Johns, and an unrivaled Southern Collection.

JANUARY 10 There was a time not so long ago when women in rock music didn’t always necessarily, y’know, rock. There were a few exceptions here and there, but it wasn’t really until the late 1970s and early ‘80s when performers like Joan Jett and Pat Benatar committed themselves to doing one thing very well: They made loud and proud hardrock music that was catchy as hell and dripping with swagger.

That’s the musical spirit that the Bostonraised, Los Angeles-based Mexican-Italian-American singer/songwriter Diamante (full name Diamante Azzura Bovelli) is bringing back with her aptly-titled debut album, “Coming In Hot.” Virtually every song on the album is designed for maximum impact. Starting with the title track, a natural “ready for the weekend” anthem if ever there was one, the guitars are cranked, the beats are stadiumsized and Diamante’s soaring vocals aim for the stratosphere, even on the ballads. There’s no irony or detachment or hipster aesthetic here; it’s just big-hearted, big-sounding rock music with a capital “R.” Add in the modern-edged sheen provided by producer Howard Benson (Chris Cornell, My Chemical Romance), and you’ve got a 21st century version of those classic

FIRMAMENTGVL.COM rock divas Jett and Benatar. And Diamante says it’s about time that attitude made a comeback. “I do think that that sort of swagger is missing,” she says. “I don't think the energy per se is missing; I actually think hard rock right now is going through a really cool time. But I do think a lot of the stuff in the ‘80s that I love is really uplifting and empowering and fun. And a lot of today’s current rock is kind of the opposite; it’s very serious and kind of a drag to listen to if you're not in that sort of head space.” And when she’s onstage, Diamante turns her good-time swagger up even higher. “To me, the live show is the most important part of my career,” she says. “I want to go out there and I want to play hard-rock music and I want to have real instruments and have a show with a live band as opposed to like, a laptop. There’s just something about live instruments that’s so much more powerful.” Onstage, Diamante, who will perform at The Firmament in Greenville on Friday, Dec. 6, is less of a singer than she is a glamrock force of nature, wailing to the rafters, stalking the stage like a predator and flinging her mane of blue hair with abandon. Which is interesting, because in conversation she’s exactly the opposite: thoughtful, even-toned and calm. “Sometimes I feel like it’s a persona, because who I am on stage can be very different from who I am in just everyday life,” she says. She’s careful not to let that rock 'n’ roll animal image become more important than her music, though. “I never want it to overshadow the music,” she says.

Usually, when musicians schedule a benefit show, they base it around the charity they want to help and go from there. But in the case of Heart Bash 2019, which was organized by Nathan Cure of the Upstate indie-rock band Color Scheme, the idea of doing a multi-band show came first, with the specific charity coming later. As both a fan of local music and a musician, Cure had been to enough shows to know that no area bands were getting rich off of playing live. So if he and his friends were going to be broke anyway, why not have a multi-band show to increase the crowd size and then give whatever money they made to a worthy cause? “We don't make all that much, moneywise,” Cure says, "but I still think we can make a difference in our community.” Cure decided that the chosen cause would be the Julie Valentine Center, an Upstate organization that works to stop child abuse and sexual assault, reduce trauma for victims and their families and engage survivors in the healing process. The benefit will be Saturday at The Spinning Jenny in Greer. “My oldest sister and my mom both volunteer there,” Cure says. “My sister also works for the DSS, so they work a lot with the Julie Valentine Center whenever they're investigating stuff. So I’ve had a lot exposure to their mission. So whenever the time came to talk about what we were going to raise awareness for and support, it was just an obvious choice because they make such a big difference in the community.” When he came up with the idea earlier this year, Cure aimed for a date close to the holidays and began reaching out to, well, just about every band he could think of, ultimately landing the Greenville alt-rock band At Least One, the atmospheric folk-rock

duo Estuarie, the synth-pop group KNGS, and classic-rockers King’s Ransome. “I actually played Little League baseball with the drummer and the singer for At Least One,” Pure says, “so I’ve known them since fifth grade. The opening band, the KNGS, we’ve never actually met, but we’ve played a lot of the same venues, so they’ll go play a new place that just opened and send me a DM saying, ‘Hey, this place is pretty cool.’ And the headliner King's Ransome is super talented; they’re probably one of the more professional high-end bands in the local scene."

We don’t make all that much, moneywise, but I still think we can make a difference in our community.” -Nathan Cure, musician Cure, who will perform with Color Scheme alongside the other bands, says he’s happiest about Estuarie being on the bill. “(Estuarie singer/guitarist) Graham Peeples was one of the first artists that I went to see when I was in high school,” Cure says. “He was a pretty big inspiration, and this is his first gig in awhile, so I’m really excited about it.” Cure says he’s trying to have modest expectations for Heart Bash 2019, but he has a couple of goals in mind. “I'm not going to base anything on numbers, especially since this is the first year,” he says. “I’d just like to expose the Julie Valentine Center and their mission to people who maybe have never heard of them.”

UP: Craft cocktails fuse flavors in fresh, creative ways

For more cocktails and photos visit GreenvilleJournal.com

n story by STEPHANIE TROTTER | photos PROVIDED

The craft-cocktail craze is stirring a culture of creativity across the Upstate. Why order a simple rum and Coke when you can sip rum infused with vanilla and ginger, topped with a carved garnish rivaling the Eiffel Tower? Barflies face a similar situation every night, when they pull up a stool and review the drink menu before ordering. “Craft cocktails are more than a drink,” says Zachary Arnold, senior bartender at Rocket Surgery in Travelers Rest. “They are an experience. They are to be slowly sipped and savored. It creates a bond when you enjoy complexities in flavors you’ve never had before.” With the country’s craze for craft beer and craft liquor, it was only a matter of time before craft cocktails filled the menu too. But students of mixology can trace the roots of fancy libations back to the Trojan War, when Homer wrote of heroes drinking wine mixed with goat cheese and ground barley, in the “Iliad.” The modern movement was born out of necessity 100 years ago during Prohibition. Those with a fragile stomach might want to stop reading here. During Prohibition, enterprising bartenders concocted custom drinks to mask the taste of illegal alcohol — which bootleggers would make using dead rats, rotten meat, wood tar and various unknown elements — to mimic the flavor of banned spirits. We’ve come a long way from the back of the woodshed. Today, bartenders scour the globe for enticing ingredients that provide subtle nuances and unique pairings. “Don’t watch ‘Cocktail’ to learn how to make drinks,” says Matt Flowers, a bartender at Bacon Bros. Public House. “That’s like watching ‘The Matrix’ to learn kung fu.”

Trendy components this year have included black sapote, blessed thistle, Szechuan peppercorns and mushrooms, proving, almost literally, no stone goes unturned to bring tailored additives to handcrafted cocktails. It’s all about fresh-squeezed juices, housemade syrups and exotic liqueurs, all whipped together and served under kitschy names that typically bring on a sly smile. After hiring an Uber, we hit the town to sample some local creations. Here are just a few that went down way too easy.

MOCKTAILS So Long Shirley Just as the craft-cocktail craze has grown, so has the demand for crafted mocktails. While most restaurants will make a mocktail — a drink without alcohol — upon request, a few already list craft mocktails on their menus. “We want to be sensitive to those who don’t drink, as well as pregnant women and children,” says Blanca Crowe, lead bartender at Soby’s. “This makes it fun for them too, and they don’t have to drink the same thing all of the time.” While nondrinkers were once limited to Shirley Temple’s, or a tonic and lime, they can now enjoy a variety of flavors with a creative drink, just like those who imbibe. “We change the menu every couple of weeks and rotate mocktails on and off,” Crowe says. “Just like with a cocktail, you want to keep it seasonal and fresh. Right now, the season calls for drinks with pomegranate, cinnamon and berries — especially cranberries.”

Even if you have heard the Celtic harp, the beautiful smaller sibling of the grand orchestral harp that John Wickey plays as the Principal Harpist for the Greenville Symphony, you must hear this gorgeous instrument in the accomplished hands of this artist. He might take you to Scotland or to Ireland—this harp speaks fluently both musical languages—or maybe to another magical music place, but you’ll go home with the haunting beauty of the Celtic harp.
