From the Archives: Living for the City – The Music of Stevie Wonder

July 2, 2020 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are releasing pre-recorded videos of Charleston Jazz Orchestra performances every week on our YouTube channel and Facebook page, free of charge, to provide comfort and connection during these uncertain times.

If you are in a position to support the continuation of this virtual concert series, please make a donation HERE. Half the funds raised directly support our musicians, many of whom have lost their income due to the cancellation of all concerts and gigs. Without our talented musicians, there is no Charleston Jazz Orchestra.

Thank you in advance for your support!



LIVING FOR THE CITY: The Music of Stevie Wonder
Originally performed live on March 26, 2016

Music Director: Charlton Singleton
Guest Vocalist: Quiana Parler

This dynamic concert was the Charleston Jazz Orchestra’s most popular concert in 2016. “Not only is Stevie known for his mastery of songwriting, vocals, and proficiency on multiple instruments, he has ALWAYS been a tremendously passionate humanitarian,” said Charlton Singleton, Music Director for the CJO.  “Even though he is best known for his R&B and Pop tunes, it is no secret that he plays, writes, and uses a number of jazz elements in his music. The biggest challenge was whittling down the song list to 90 minutes  – there are so many classics to choose from!”
