Who are we?
We are celebrating 50 years of service to Charleston – supporting the Charleston Symphony Orchestra and providing student and professional scholarships – by orchestrating numerous events that have enriched the lives of our entire community.
What do we do?
Over the years, we have hosted a wide variety of fundraisers, including a fall Island Tour of Homes, a Designer Showhouse in the spring, Opening Night Galas, Revels parties, and “Swing for the Symphony” golf tournaments. We’re currently working with the CSO to put together a dazzling Cabaret!
| How does this benefit the community?
• The CSOL® is a major contributor to the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. Plus, we assist them by ushering at concerts and providing hospitality for the musicians.
• We actively support music education by annually awarding more than $30,000 in scholarships including college scholarships, matching grant scholarships, scholarships for summer study, and professional scholarships for CSO musicians.
• We work with state arts advocates to promote study of the arts in our schools and fine arts throughout the state.
