Musical powerhouses Charlton Singleton and Quiana Parler will be bringing the sounds of Stevie Wonder to Charleston. That’s right, folks — the most popular Charleston Jazz Orchestra concert of 2016 is making a reappearance in 2017 as part of a series of concerts hosted by the Town of Kiawah Arts and Cultural Events Council.

The concert was so well-received the first time around that the band has high hopes for its second incarnation, this time including the vocals of Quiana Parler, who has competed on American Idol and toured with Clay Aiken. The set list ranges from “Superstition” to “Isn’t She Lovely." All of the songs were arranged by local Charleston Jazz Musicians, including Brett Belanger, Frank Duvall, and Robert Lewis. If a concert is so good it’s happening twice, it’s definitely something to check out. For more information and to scoop some tickets, head over to
