The Charleston Symphony Orchestra conductors will be busy waving their wands through the end of January at a handful of upcoming concerts. On Wed. Jan. 13, Sounds at the Sea takes place at the South Carolina Aquarium. Attendees can enjoy listening to the orchestra’s seven ensembles while exploring the 5,000 inhabitants of the Aquarium and noshing on light hors d’oeuvres and non-alcoholic drinks. Sounds at the Sea begins at 6 p.m. and tickets are $20/non-member, and $10/Aquarium and Orchestra members.

CSO’s January performance lineup continues on Saturday with Yuriy!, featuring Yuriy Bekker (pictured, left), CSO’s Concertmaster of three seasons and an acclaimed violinist from Minsk, Belarus. Bekker has played with orchestras and music festivals around the world, and he’s a regular at Charleston’s own Spoleto Festival. Yuriy!, conducted by CSO Music Director David Stahl will feature Bekker in the “Violin Concerto” by Mendelssohn. Listeners can also expect to hear the “Overture to William Tell” by Rossini (whose finale was used as the “Lone Ranger” theme song) and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 (“Pastorale”).

The CSO is also excited about their “The Evolution of a Dream” Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., which will feature their Gospel Choir and Chorus along with guest soprano soloist, Robert Laws. The concert will be held at the Gaillard Auditorium on Mon. Jan. 18 and begins at 4 p.m. Then on Jan. 22 and 23, Quentin Baxter (pictured, right) and friends headline the McCrady’s Pops concert.
