9/18/20 – LIVE AT FIREFLY: Trumpet Legends

September 18, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT

CJO Season 12 Reimagined

The COVID-19 pandemic poses fundamental challenges to live music and we have to (temporarily) reinvent what the Charleston Jazz Orchestra is and does while the concert halls are closed.

In an effort to keep our musicians safe but also playing, and to continue to bring new music to you, all performances for the rest of the year will be performed by half of the CJO musicians live outdoors at Firefly Distillery in North Charleston as well as virtually.  All season subscribers and current ticket holders will receive a unique link to the virtual performance as well as have the option to enjoy the concert live. Due to space limitations and to follow social distancing guidelines, we are selling a limited number of tickets to the live performance. Tickets for the virtual performance are also for sale.

As always, thank you for your support and patience as we continue to navigate this challenging time. We are learning, listening, experimenting, improvising, and adapting to ensure the Charleston Jazz Orchestra can continue to perform for our community. To help us secure our future, please donate if you are able HERE.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to us at jazz@charlestonjazz.com or by calling 843-641-0011.

CJO Season 12 continues with Trumpet Legends

In early days of jazz, the majestic and astounding trumpet reigned and was the natural leader of the band – trumpet was king. Before the shift to the saxophone as the dominant instrument of jazz, musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis, to name a few, put the trumpet in the spotlight. For this performance, your Charleston Jazz Orchestra will feature members of its trumpet section as we pay homage to the Trumpet Legends who shaped its sound.

Live at Firefly: Friday, September 18 at 6:00pm (Doors at 5pm)

A limited number of tickets are available for Trumpet Legends Live at Firefly. Must have a previously purchased ticket for the Groovin’ High performance originally scheduled for 9/12 at the Charleston Music Hall or purchase a Live at Firefly ticket for entry.

BONUS: Includes access to the virtual performance which will be available for all ticket holders for the rest of the year.
