DIHS Presents Sound of Charleston….From Gospel to Gershwin

September 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This program will be a sample of the popular weekly show presented at historic Circular Congregational Church in downtown Charleston.
For more than three centuries, Charleston’s musical heritage has been as diverse as the people who’ve lived here – haunting spirituals of slaves first arriving in America through our port; Civil War camp songs from both sides in this place where the first shots were fired; pieces such as “Amazing Grace” and Pachelbel’s Canon in D that are wonderfully connected to the history of this great city; and, of course, Porgy and Bess, inspired and composed in Charleston by the incomparable George Gershwin. This is but a snapshot of the rich array of music that makes up The Sound of Charleston.


In addition to a great evening of music chronicling local history we have a special treat…new and renewing members of Daniel Island Historical Society will receive one of two Jonathon Green posters while supplies last.
