News > Charleston Concert Association Receives Grant from S.C. Arts Commission

Congratulations to the Charleston Concert Association for being awarded $11,406 by the South Carolina Arts Commission. The grant will promote the efforts of the Charleston Concert Association to bring the joy of world-class music and dance to the Charleston community. This grant also commemorates the association’s appreciation of the performing arts.

Jason Nichols President of the Charleston Concert Association is very excited to be receiving this grant.

“This support is especially appreciated this year in light of the Gaillard closing for renovation and the CCA moving to a much smaller venue. The funding will be a tremendous help, and we are very grateful to the Arts Commission for this award,” Nichols says.

Several area businesses, including Handsome Properties, along with several major individual contributors are helping the Charleston Concert Association more than meet its obligation of matching the Arts Commission grant with local dollars. Grants from the Post and Courier Foundation, the Coca Cola Foundation and BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina are also being used to help with the match.

Local residents are urged to find out how the Arts Commission grant is benefiting the Charleston Concert Association by attending the January 22, 2013 performance of Chanticleer, called “the world’s reigning male chorus,” by the New Yorker magazine.

The 7:00 p.m. performance will be held at the College of Charleston’s Sottile Theatre (44 George St). Concert tickets are on sale at Ticket Master or through the CCA office at 131 King Street, 843.727.1216.
