Our Mission

Established in 1995, the SouthCoast Symphony Orchestra is composed of professional and amateur musicians from Charleston and the Lowcountry. We are run by musicians for musicians.

Charleston’s SouthCoast Symphony Orchestra employs a contemporary approach in sharing and promoting symphonic music, maintaining excellence in performance and providing entertaining historical context in order to maximize accessibility. The SSO is committed to providing these concerts for the Charleston Community free of charge to promote the vitality of the musical arts.

We are firm believers in the power of music; that it is has the power to unite people and bring communities together.
