Join us for a Summer Fête on Sunday, June 27 from 5:00-7:30 pm at the Charleston Yacht Club, 27 Lockwood Drive. The event will celebrate a remarkable year while raising funds for the Charleston Symphony and music education programs. 


The Fête will be a casual gathering in a beautiful setting overlooking the Ashley River and City Marina. The stage will be set for a delectable charcuterie array of gourmet specialty items from Mosaic Catering with a wine pairing. Tables will be socially distanced and masks are required. 


Maura Hogan, Arts Critic at the Post and Courier, Yuriy Bekker, Principal Pops Conductor and Artistic Director, and Charleston Symphony musicians will present an inspiring program.  Maestro Bekker will share highlights of the upcoming 2021-22 season and CSOL scholarship winners will perform.  The evening will conclude with Fund The Need.  


The CSO is one of the few orchestras in the country to perform a full season of live performances. However, this has resulted in a revenue loss of $1 million and organizational restructuring, due to COVID.

As the CSO’s largest donor, the CSOL is counting on the Charleston community’s generosity to help offset this revenue loss. Jaimie Flack, Event Chair said; “During this unprecedented time CSO concerts have been a gift to many. Now it’s our turn to make a gift to the CSO. Every effort is being made to raise a minimum of $50,000 for the CSO and music education programs.” In addition to a live Fund the Need at the Fête, gifts to Fund the Need may be made on-line at beginning June 1st.
