Happy hump day Charleston. Here’s what we’re up to online (and in person!):

Spoleto at Home
Spoleto Festival USA 2020’s virtual programs, offered through June 7, will feature some of the festival’s most popular offerings including chamber music concerts at Dock Street Theatre; partnering with South Carolina ETV, Spoleto presents weekday radio broadcasts of 11 past Bank of America Chamber Music programs, curated by festival director of chamber music, Geoff Nuttall.

Holy City Vintage Market: Spring Fling Edition

Group show
Redux Contemporary Art Center is now accepting submissions for their ongoing window exhibition, From You To Us. You can check out the work in Redux’s big front windows now, and it’s not too late to contribute your own piece, too. Redux is asking current members to mail in art in the form of a postcard to be used in an evolving installation. If you’re not a member you can become one by joining online — individual memberships start at $50.


From the Archive: Art of Jazz Edition
Charleston Jazz and the Gibbes Museum present an archived concert from their Art of Jazz series. This week’s performance comes from June 2018, when Marcus Amaker and Quentin Baxter performed a concert inspired by Patrick Dougherty’s sculpture exhibit, Betwixt and Between. The duo premiered new works of poetry and music during this special performance.

Music Under the Oaks w/ Mike Martin
We sure do miss live music and now we’re getting to enjoy it from a safe social distance with Music Under the Oaks at Johns Island’s Tattooed Moose. Join gritty Americana group the Mike Martin Band and jam out with Irish folk and country influenced tunes.
