Best Friend Program


The 2023 Best Friend Program goes on sale November 25, 2022, at 10am. By joining this special program, you will get the chance to buy seats in specific sections 24 hours before the general public.  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 exists to create extraordinary experiences and promote the finest local, regional, and national music and entertainment acts. We seek to set a national standard for diverse programming, engagement with our audiences, and leadership within the community in which we reside. Our venue is a safe space where all are welcome and we hope to provide a vital artistic resource for the people of Charleston and the region. We strive 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 creative 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 25 at 10 am and December 23 at 10 pm, you will have the opportunity to buy one of the Best Friend programs. Each program will allow you 24 hour advance access to purchase seats for all shows* announced during the year of your membership (approximately 150). You will receive personalized emails each week with upcoming shows. All you have to do is respond to those emails with where you would like to sit, and we will then call you and sell you your seats over the phone – it is just that easy! We are only selling Premium Programs for 2023 as the Front Row Program is sold out. This program will guarantee you the best seats in the house from rows 2 and back. An extra perk is that you do not have to pay any online fees!

1 Best Friend Program = 1 Seat. Anyone purchasing a Best Friend Program must be a resident of South Carolina. You cannot buy more than 4 programs. If you buy more than 4, we will be refunding you for any additional programs. If you are a couple, we recommend buying 2 programs, so that you can get two premium seats before the general public

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

Cost = $250 + tax (this covers you for an entire year!)

You will also receive first right of refusal for the 2024 program also.

Our Front Row Best Friend Program is currently SOLD OUT. If any of these members, do not renew, we will open these to the public. Front Row Best Friend Cost = $350 + tax
