Arts in Charleston are on the rise as the pandemic shifts, but the threat is far from gone

An unforgettable weekend of ARTS UNDER THE OAKS:

"Many under the wind-rumbling tent evidenced solid, stirring professional potential. More heartening still was this rare moment of arts ascendant as a new generation were granted a hard-won chance to perform. I venture to guess those aspiring performers will long remember the magic of the weekend when they helped ensure the arts prevail against daunting odds."
