With over 180 members, Spoleto SCENE is a dynamic group of younger festival supporters who assemble each year to network, mingle with artists, and reap the many benefits of their membership — especially the parties. To mark the official start of the group’s social season, SCENE will host a kickoff party at Spoleto’s George Street headquarters. The venue will host the swanky gathering worthy of any SCENEster, with hors d’oeuvres from Two Boroughs Larder served along with wine and specialty cocktails from Maverick Southern Kitchen. There will also be live entertainment from New South Jazz Men, the same group who plays every Wednesday at Osteria la Bottiglia. Committee members will be circulating throughout the evening, sharing what’s in store for Spoleto 2012. If you’re already a part of SCENE, call the box office for your complimentary ticket. If not, tickets are $20, but the price will be deducted from your initiation fee should you decide to become a member.
