It’s an Unedited Artists (Kristin Fieseler of Annex Dance and Jonathan Kammer, Saxophone join us) Locals Only celebration of the Golden Age of American Song – contrasted with bits of chamber music coming out of the European Theater – as we celebrate and groove to the tunes of the US of A from 1914-1945. While the world was in turmoil, American spirits were buoyed by the music of greats like Garland and Harris and hits by Kern, Gershwin, and Rodgers & Hammerstein. Wear those ruby slippers and get ready to kick your heels up with Quentin Baxter, Jeremy Wolf and Richard White Jr. – because there’s no place like home…
And don’t forget, preshow dance lessons start at 6PM!
Songs of Freedom: A Library Sit-in
Lift every Voice and Sing as we put a unique spin on the songs of Liberty and Justice for All in the very place and institution that hatched so many of America’s Revolutionary Ideas. There’ll be great conversations Blowin in the Wind as we celebrate the sounds of change, civil rights, and independence through the songs of Guthrie, Marvin Gaye, and the Civil Rights Song Book compiled by Guy and Candy Carawan. With special guest choir from Charleston Collegiate School and a Charleston Band that embodies the beautiful harmonies of our wonderful and talented community, come help us raise the roof @ 164 King Street as we Let the Sunshine in!
