About Us

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.
