VIRTUAL EVENT: Sounds of the Lowcountry
Premieres Saturday, October 24 at 7:30pm
America’s greatest art form may have been born in New Orleans, but the Lowcountry was quite arguably one of the early incubators of jazz. One of the greatest influences on jazz history in the Holy City was the Jenkins Orphanage Band, producing jazz greats such as William “Cat” Anderson, Jabbo Smith and Freddie Green. Based on the rhythms of the Gullah/Geechee Culture, that Lowcountry Swing can be found in some of our favorite tunes – Until I Met You,Tuxedo Junction, and Porgy & Bess. From Ragtime to Broadway and everything in between, your Charleston Jazz Orchestra will explore the Sounds of the Lowcountry with music that is distinctly Charleston Jazz.
The performance will be available on demand after the initial premiere.
If you are a 2020 CJO Season Subscriber or have a previously purchased ticket for the original Charleston Music Hall performance, you DO NOT need to purchase an additional ticket! We will send you a link for the Virtual Performance.
