Good news! While we have cancelled our shows in September-November, we are planning to hold our Holiday Editions! Attendance will be limited, social distancing practiced (other than families/groups), masks will be encouraged, and thorough sanitation practices followed. Rest assured that our shows have no choral singing. The vocal soloists and instrumentalists who perform during the individual sets of the program will be 12 feet from the audience. Please come and enjoy The Sound of Charleston!!
Come and experience the music that helps define Charleston’s 350 year history…..gospel, Gershwin, Civil War, jazz, and light classics….in live concerts at historic Circular Congregational Church. Frommers Travel Guide says “the best night out in the city…a must see performance.”
For 350 years, Charleston’s musical heritage has been as diverse as the people who have lived here. Now celebrating our 10th season, come and hear that music at one of our unforgettable concerts.

Ten years ago, after reading visitor surveys and travel magazines say that history was a top reason people come to Charleston, we launched a new concert series we called The Sound of Charleston. 500 concerts later, visitors and locals are still flocking to Circular
Congregational Church to hear history coming to life through music performed by our finest professional musicians. Our shows entertain, educate, and evoke emotion through gospel spirituals, Civil War songs, Gershwin’s “Porgy & Bess” and “Rhapsody in Blue”, jazz and light classics of the St. Cecelia Society. “Amazing Grace”, composed by John Newton after worshipping in our venue, concludes every show.
