We kicked off our new program year Tuesday night with a great sample of the show Sound of Charleston….from Gospel to Gershwin. Joining us from Sound of Charleston were Bill Schlitt, Maida Libkin and Ghadi Shayban. Schlitt shared some of the fascinating musical legacy of Charleston including various versions of songs song by both sides in the Civil War. But the high point of the evening was a stunning duet of Rhapsody in Blue performed by Libkin and Shayban who are respectively a former Broadway pianist and the current pianist for Charleston Symphony Orchestra. Thanks to Crystal Klimawicz for setting up a great event.
