Now that Governor McMaster has allowed music halls and venues to reopen, (click here for a link to the July 29, 2020, Post & Courier article), Charleston Music Hall will be reopening at 250 person capacity.
Please know that we are not rushing to open our doors, but are planning to carefully and safely re-open in the next few months as long as the cases continue to drop. We are able to socially distance 250 people in a space that seats 1,000. Groups will be seated 3 chairs away from other groups (just over 6 feet), and no one will be seated directly in front of or behind another person. We are also going to be removing every other row in the orchestra to create that much more space between patrons. We are working on pre-order online concessions where you can purchase your concessions prior to the show, and we will bring them to you! No more lines! A full list of our new COVID Guidelines will be released prior to the official announcement of our return date.
For those of you who do not feel safe attending in person, we are working on a paid live stream experience for most shows this Fall. More details to come.
We are still offering micro-events and micro-weddings for the Fall if you want to come be privately entertained with a group of your family, friends, or colleagues. More details here.
Finally, we are also working on an outside venue to safely host larger concerts for the Fall. More information will be forthcoming as we work to finalize the details.
Last year we produced a Buena Vista Social Club tribute, Buena Vista Legacy on Friday, October 11, 2019, in collaboration with Gino Castillo. It was an incredible night and one of our favorite events of 2019. We are excited to announce that we recorded the full concert along with some bonus footage and we will be premiering it on YouTube this Friday, August 14, 2020 at 7:00 pm in partnership w/ Havana Nights Charleston & MeanStream Studios!
