A Charleston institution since 1936, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra gathers internationally experienced musicians to perform popular favorites and classical masterpieces. In this season's opening concert, the orchestra invites acclaimed Broadway stars Rita Harvey, who recently performed in Fiddler on the Roof with Rosie O'Donnell, and Ron Bohmer, whose resumé brims with high-school-track ribbons and starring roles in The Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard. As conductor Stuart Malina dishes out Morse code instructions with his baton, singers belt the familiar lyrics of songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein classics, including The King & I, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music. A talented cadre of strings, horns, and percussionists recreate the sweeping sounds of Broadway, led by concertmaster Yuriy Bekker, whose violin has dazzled audiences in the Kennedy Center and music festivals worldwide.

Since its completion in 1713, The Powder Magazine has served as a storage shed for gunpowder, a stable, a wine shop, a print shop, and finally a museum, now dedicated to Charleston's colonial history. The talented Rodney Rogers delights the Magazine's guests for 40 minutes every Saturday by impersonating Stede Bonnet, otherwise known as The Gentleman Pirate, with a program of charming, historically accurate accounts of prominent Carolina pirates. In addition to the show, patrons can make deeply emotional connections with each brick in The Powder Magazine’s 300-year-old, three-foot-thick walls, and enjoy a 10% discount on all items purchased in the museum shop.
