LIVE AT THE CHARLESTON MUSIC HALL SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION
Dear Sponsor: Live at the Charleston Music Hall is a half-hour show packed full of superior songwriting, award-winning artists, a little Q&A and scenes from one of the most historic cities in our nation. Founded in 1670, Charleston has a culture rich in music. Our music and dancing inspired the Charleston Rag and the Charleston. Our very own Jenkins Orphanage Band has had members go on to play with Count Basie, Duke Ellington and on Broadway in Porgy and Bess (penned right here at Folly Beach by DuBose Heyward in 1934). This Southern city’s charm has produced and lured many talented singers, songwriters and musicians. Now see some of America’s greatest talents with ties to “The Friendliest City in America” (nine years in a row, Condé Nast Traveler) perform their hits and tell their stories! Stay tuned. … You won’t want to miss this! The Charleston Music Hall (CMH) began its life as The Tower Depot. Built in 1849–50 and designed by Charleston architect Edward C. Jones, the building resembles a medieval castle with the symmetry known in Renaissance style. CMH experienced only a short tenure as a passenger depot. Most of the three-story tower did not survive the earthquake of 1886, and the building sat vacant for 60 years. In 1995, the Bennett Hofford Company facilitated the hall’s amazing transformation into an arts venue. Renowned bluegrass musician Ricky Skaggs won a Grammy for Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder: Live at The Charleston Music Hall. Letters of intent from SCETV and NETV to air on PBS are attached with our sponsorship package for your review.
