Charleston Symphony Orchestra Masterworks presents


January 5, 2018 @ 7:30 pm

Dear Symphony Patrons,

We regretfully inform you that due to severe weather, we must make some changes to this weekend’s performance schedule. In order to ensure the safety of our musicians and staff, we must cancel this Friday’s performance of Brahms 2nd Symphony at the Gaillard Center. We plan to continue with Saturday’s performance as scheduled. If this changes, we will notify you.

As our apology for this inconvenience, we would like to offer our Friday ticket holders some alternative ways to see the CSO perform.

All Friday ticket holders are welcome to attend Saturday’s performance. Please bring your Friday tickets to exchange at the Gaillard Center’s Box Office on Saturday. We cannot guarantee you will receive the same seat, but we will do our best to accommodate your seating preferences at the event.

Additionally, we will be holding an open-seating dress rehearsal on Saturday at 12:00pm. All Friday tickets will be honored, and guests are invited to sit wherever they would like.

Friday ticket holders who cannot attend the Saturday performance or the dress rehearsal are invited to exchange their tickets for any upcoming concert remaining in the 2017-2018 season, based on availability.

Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience. Like you, we were looking forward to spending Friday evening listening to Schumann and Brahms in the warm halls of the Gaillard! Regardless, we will do everything we can to ensure that you have a pleasant experience with us, either this Saturday or at a future performance.

For questions, please contact Cindy Branch at
