Best Friend Program

By joining this special program, you will get the chance to buy seats in specific sections 24 hours before the general public, and we will also send you a limited-edition Best Friend T-Shirt and sticker designed by local artist, Marshall Hudson.  On top of these great perks, you will be able to consider yourself a promoter of the arts. We have come a long way in the last few years at CMH, but it is extremely expensive and time consuming to produce high quality shows. Your contribution will most certainly help us continue to strive towards our mission: The Charleston Music Hall seeks to set a national standard for ambitious programming, engagement with its audiences, and leadership within the community in which it resides, providing a vital artistic resource for the people of Charleston and the region.  Our goal is to build a better conversation and relationship between the artist and the audience and aspire to the highest levels of artistic achievement while also exploring new and exciting territories in artistic vision.

A fun fact – originally built as a train station in 1850, the current location of CMH once housed a train called The Best Friend. You can actually see a replica of the train at the museum across the street from CMH – the train for which our program is named!


How The Best Friend Program Works:

Between November 15th at 10 am and December 20that 10 pm you will have the opportunity to buy one of the Best Friend programs. You will pick from one of two levels; The Front Row Program or The Premium Program.  Each program will allow you 24 hour advance access to purchase seats for all shows* announced during the year of your membership (approximately 150). When we announce a new show, you will be given a unique code. You will then be able to buy a seat before the general public and venue pre-sale. You can conveniently do so by phone, in person or by emailing us. Purchasing a Best Friend Program does not get you a specific seat, but will allow you to choose a seat within your chosen section. Please note you will not be able to purchase these online.

1 Best Friend Program = 1 Seat. Anyone purchasing a Best Friend Program must be a resident of South Carolina.

*Please note: this program does not apply for rentals, Moranz Entertainment shows including The Charleston Christmas Special, or Charleston Jazz Orchestra shows.
