The purpose of this research is to foster community interaction, especially among musicians, and to measurably enhance the unique cultural characteristics of our shared community here in Orangeburg. There are neither any reasonably foreseeable risks nor any significant direct benefits attached to participation in this research. However, the Claflin University researchers involved- faculty and students alike- sincerely hope to contribute positively to musical interaction in the cultural life of this community.
This project is funded by in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
