Mu­si­cal Notes

Where Charleston - - Where Now -

Mu­si­cal per­for­mances un­der the stars and in his­toric cathe­drals are fes­ti­val fa­vorites and good picks for first-timers.


The Wells Fargo Jazz se­ries of­fers an eclec­tic lineup of mu­si­cians play­ing in the Cistern Yard, a pic­turesque court­yard on Col­lege of Charleston’s cam­pus. Performers in­clude Grammy and Tony-win­ning jazz vo­cal­ist Dee Dee Bridge­wa­ter and the Pedrito Martinez Group, a Cuban-jazz group with strong per­cus­sions. Fe­male bluegrass band Della Mae also per­forms in the Cistern Yard. Con­certs are at 9 p.m. on se­lect week­end nights.


The West­min­ster Choir has been per­form­ing at Spo­leto since the fes­ti­val’s in­cep­tion in 1977. The con­certs are held at the Cathe­dral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul on the Col­lege of Charleston cam­pus. The cather­dral dates to 1815.


The Re­vival­ists head­line the Wells Fargo Fes­ti­val Fi­nale at Mid­dle­ton Place. Ar­rive early to stroll the land­scaped gar­dens at Mid­dle­ton Place, a 17th cen­tury plan­ta­tion on the banks of the Ash­ley River, and sip on bev­er­ages from the beer gar­den. Stay af­ter the mu­sic for a fire­works fi­nale.
