2019 Sound of Charleston

The Sound of Charleston is a celebration Charleston's diverse musical heritage. This 75-minute live concert features music from the past three centuries - from gospel to Gershwin, as the organizers are fond of saying. It's a unique and inspiring experience that has brought audiences to their feet, and often to tears. The sundry musical sampling will include spirituals sung by the first slaves arriving in America through Charleston's port, Civil War camp songs from both sides, and much more.

The beautiful and historic Circular Congregational Church serves both as host site and part of the history. The famous hymn "Amazing Grace" was written by John Newton after drawing inspiration from sermons he attended at this very church. "Porgy and Bess" was composed by George Gershwin while staying in Charleston. Charleston also has a significant jazz connection that predates the New Orleans jazz scene. This is just a snapshot of the rich variety that make up The Sound of Charleston.
