On a recent trip to Charleston, we happened upon information about "The Sound of Charleston" and decided to see what it was all about. We attended a Wednesday night performance at the Circular Congregational Church which started at 7:00 p.m. The church filled up quickly and we would recommend arriving 20-30 minutes ahead to choose your seating. We parked in a parking garage nearby to the church and had an early dinner at the restaurant, Fig, which we walked to from the garage, just a couple of blocks away (and which is a great little restaurant anytime you are in Charleston for lunch or dinner.) Tickets for the concert were $28.00 for adults and $26.00 for seniors. The show was about an hour and 20 minutes long and showcased a variety of music and performers from classical (Fuchs, Pachelbel and Haydn) to Civil War music to Gospel Spirituals to Gershwin ( selections from Porgy and Bess). The performers were excellent and the host who wove the story of the music together with local history did a fine job. Definitely worth the time if you want something a little different performed in a historic setting.
