Why CRESCENDO as a Title? The crescendo brings intensity to music, a steady upswing in volume where the music stuns and shatters sound barriers. The Arts and Cultural Council of Hilton Head brings the same intensity to October packing the arts calendar with a stunning array of arts, culture and history events. Therefore: CRESCENDO!

Why the Month of October for CRESCENDO?

  • National Arts and Humanities Month, first launched 30 years ago by Americans for the Arts, includes these goals: 

  • Focus on the arts at local, state and national levels 

  • Encourage individuals and organizations to participate in the arts

  • Allow governments and businesses to show their support of the arts 

  • Raise public awareness about the role the arts and humanities play in our communities and lives
