If you’d seen the Charleston Concert Association’s old website, you knew it was pretty horrid. Though the concerts were great — Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Bell, Aspen Sante Fe Ballet, and of host of names that mean a whole lot of awesomeness — getting information about them was more trying than it had to be.
Fortunately, the nonprofit organization has taken steps to step up its website the way it has with its concerts (and for the 2008-2009 season, it stepped up in a big way). Board member Baron Hanson shot us a quick note the other day to tell us what’s happening and what we can look forward to.
“In the coming weeks, we will begin to introduce the new CCA season and website to interested corporate concert sponsors, season co-sponsors, and education programs sponsors,” Hanson told City Paper.
Yadda, yadda, yadda.
The important thing is the concert line-up for next season: Martha Graham Dance Company on Oct. 27; An Evening of Bernstein with the Bruckner Orchestra of Linz, Austria, on Nov. 16; Kathleen Battle singing the traditional holiday music of Handel, Bach, Tchaikovsky, and Mozart on Dec. 7; winners of the Van Cliburn Piano Competition in Texas, date and time to be announced later; Moscow Festival Ballet, March 8, 2010; Philobolus on April 10, 2010.
