Terrific jazz, Latin music, and swing are on the horizon at the Charleston Music Hall. Over the last few years, the Charleston Jazz Orchestra — Charleston’s own “resident big band” — and its main supporter, the Jazz Artists of Charleston, have been serving the Charleston music community with a series of concerts and special events. They recently announced dates and ticket info for the 2011 season.
Specially-priced season passes are available for the CJO’s upcoming 2011 concerts at the Charleston Music Hall. Three six-concert packages are available for $162 (for adults), $135 (for seniors), and $108 (for students). The three-show packages are available for $81 (for adults), $67.50 (for seniors), and $54 (for students). Season passes are available by phone at (843) 641-0011. Discounted individual advance tickets are available, too.
The first concert of the year is set for Fri. Jan. 29, with shows in March, May, September, October, and November to follow. Programming will be announced.
The JAC concluded a busy 2010 with a holiday-themed program in November at the Charleston Music Hall led by conductor and trumpeter Charlton Singleton, along with a special performance in December at the Charleston Ballet Theatre by guitarist Clay Ross and the Gradual Lean.
