What a dissapointment, not sure what cocktail of booze and drugs HR was on but he certianly ruined what would have otherwise been an awesome show. The rest of the band was tight, however when HR had to sit down during the first song you knew it was going to be a long set. Not sure if he was not even trying to sing, could not rerember lyrics, had his microphone cut off, or just did not even realize he was on stage. It was sad , I will be surprised if they make all the tour dates. Should see them back in 87.
so is this free? o_O
I've never been able to go due to always having to work.
The movie playing on Sept. 9th will be Toy Story 3. Indiana Jones played last time.
MusicLuver324, I believe you've missed the point of the recent restructuring of the Charleston Symphony. For years the CSO over-reached the financial backbone of what Charleston could afford. True, it became a great symphony, the quality of which rivaled those in much larger cities. However, despite having many artistic ventures competing for the same "purse," Charleston is not a Chicago, Manhattan or Philadelphia, or even a Jacksonville for that matter. While many of us loved it, the orchestra Maestro Stahl built "outsized" the community's resources. It became the largest budget full-time performing arts institution in SC. It was the only orchestra in the state to employ full-time professional musicians throughout its season and offered the most generous benefits to its musicians. (These facts were unfortunately also paralleled by running in the red consistently for the past decade or so and repeatedly borrowing from the upcoming season to pay for the present season).
There were a small number of musicians let go in this restructuring process - and the artistic quality and consistency difference that your mention is as regrettable as it is undeniable. However, the restructured model achieved a balance between artistic quality and a budget size more appropriate to our small community. In my opinion, a view shared by many, the restructuring could be faulted for not going far enough: the other "professional" orchestras in SC employ an entirely "per-service" model with no full-time musicians. Listen to the symphonies of Hilton Head, Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Florence and Greenville and, like Charleston, they sound tremendous! Were the CSO to adopt this model they could produce entertaining concerts year-round with world-class soloists like Emanuel Ax at an additional substantial savings.
The minimal difference in quality forms a sacrifice which is the seed for a stronger, more fiscally responsible Charleston Symphony. Already, the CSO has responsibly invested the savings in new professional back office staffing, with a new executive director, a new marketing director and a new development director, staffing positions demanded for years by people inside and outside the organization. The future of symphonic music in Charleston is bright.
ts- I know a number of local musicians both in and out of hte CSO. Unfortunately, the "whole orchestra" will not be back this season - or any time in the foreseeable future. The "reinvented" orchestra employs less than half the number of full-time musicians than what it did previously. It's likely to be some time before we see anything like the quality and consistency we saw built up under Maestro Stahl.
After attending CSO concerts for the past many years and seeing Maestro David Stahl build the orchestra to an artistic quality rivaling the greatest ensembles, last season with its shrunken core was a huge disappointment. I'm thrilled the whole orchestra will be back this season - under new management!
This review is about the $20 buffet.
Do NOT get the Wednesday $20 all you and eat and drink buffet!! All you get are hot dogs, potato salad and Miller High life. For the same money, I would rather be able to go to the vendor and pick my own beer and food. Unless you are willing to drink little dixie cups of High Life stay with the beer vendors.
Grown Up Avenger Stuff - Wow!!! - What a surprise! Fantastic band (from Charlotte I think?) - Be sure to see them if they ever come back! And of course L Brown Odyssey - a bunch of pro's at rocking out. Can't believe this show was free.
Michael Fischbach at MUSC makes learning photography a lot of fun! He helps you to unlock your camera's potential, whether you are completely unfamiliar with a digital camera ...or you simply want to deepen your understanding. Great for folks who want to learn travel photography.
Try his classes! Super affordable.....Michael is a charming, enthusiastic instructor. He's great with teens, especially, because he is so relaxed and energetic.
Cancelled because the organizers failed to get the proper permits. I doubt the declared themselves a charity and luckily for them, they didn't get stuck with a big tax bill.

It was our first time going to see the girls and we all had a great time. Our 10 year old boy is in love with the girls, and our 15 year old girl wants to be one. The "siblings" put on a great show. We cheered for the heatbreakers, but quickly realized either of the three teams could be our favorite. The girls have guts! Who know's, maybe Mom (me) will try out for a team. :) Good job girls! We will be back for more.

Come see the art work at the Galleries of Gallery Row on Broad Street, such as Coco Viva or the Hamlet Fine Art Gallery to name a few. Charleston has a wealth of fantastic art and such wonderful artists and galleries to talk with and get to know.

Bring earplugs. Nonstop loudness. Write drink orders on cards and carry them with you. Madness. Throw caution to the wind. But be careful.
Helena Fox Fine Art & Anson will also participate!
