What People are Saying About The Sound of Charleston...
"The best thing we did in Charleston! Fun, informative and uplifting.... Thanks, Sound of Charleston!"
"I attended The Sound of Charleston performance at the Circular
Congregational Church today and wanted to tell you how fantastic an
experience it was. It happened that there were over 100
middle-schoolers in attendance as well. Bill Schlitt was not only the
host, but he was the historian who tied it all together expertly. I
usually do not like anyone else pretending to know Charleston history,
because they often mess it up, but he was right on."
"Singing along to Amazing Grace in the very church where the composer attended was very humbling and moving."
"A must see, do, and hear."
"An amazing concert."
