  • Exquisite music by talented members of Charleston’s symphony in an incredibly beautiful setting. The candlelight really made the experience. I couldn’t stop smiling. Vivaldi never sounded better.
  • A wonderful show and experience. Well decorated with candlelight throughout, and top notch musicians playing the classics. A delightful addition was the quartet’s explanations of the pieces from their own experiences.
  • It was a beautiful performance in the historic and lovely Unitarian Church. The violinists were so talented and had great personalities as they told us about the different pieces they were playing.
