Charleston Jazz Orchestra Season 12 will continue with two performance options – Virtual Premiere + Live at Firefly

September 8, 2020

Charleston Jazz will present the remaining performances of the Charleston Jazz Orchestra Season 12 as a Virtual Premiere and Live at Firefly. A limited number of tickets are available for the live performances. Live at Firefly Tickets – $30 | Virtual Tickets – $10. Event Information and tickets can be found on www.charlestonjazz.com.

For the Live at Firefly performances: Doors open at 5pm. Show begins at 6pm. Must have a previously purchased ticket for the performances originally scheduled at the Charleston Music Hall or purchase a Live at Firefly ticket for entry. BONUS: Live at Firefly ticket includes access to the virtual performance which will be available for all ticket holders for the rest of the year.

Located near Park Circle in North Charleston, Firefly Distillery features beautiful large grounds with plenty of space for our audience to enjoy the performance in a safe environment. For the safety of our CJO musicians, this performance will be performed by half the musicians. Food truck snacks, Firefly cocktails and other beverages will be available for sale.

ALL ATTENDEES WILL BE REQUIRED TO:
– Bring own chair/blanket
– Wear a mask while moving around Firefly grounds
– Sit at least 6 feet from each other (besides members from the same household)
– Recommended: We will have bug spray and hand sanitizer but it is recommended you bring some of your own.

As always, thank you for your continued 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 will be back on stage swinging as soon as possible.
