The Ira & Nancy Koger Center for the arts demonstrates the cooperative spirit present in South Carolina. Its construction is the product of a shared dream and a shared labour of love for many in the community; a combined effort, with both public and private entities contributing to make this dream a reality.The center is named for philanthropists Ira and Nancy Koger, who made a substantial donation from personal and corporate funds for construction of the $15 million center.

Despite the many successes at the Koger Center, the perception still exists that the building is under-used. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In an average year, the Koger Center plays hosts to approximately 535 different events. Not all are public events. For each performance on stage there is at least, on average, one rehearsal often more. During the school year fourteen music classes take place in the rehearsal rooms each week and, in addition to the public performances, such diversified events as The State of the State Address, The South Carolina Body Building Championships, and The South Carolina Science Fair, Freshman Orientation, and The Conductor's Institute are held in the building. Far from being under-used, there is a lack of space on the calendar to accommodate all of the various groups that wish to use the building. On average, four events a week are turned down because of the lack of calendar space.
