Best Friend Program

This program is currently closed for the year. The 2020 Best Friend Program will go on sale in November 2019. Check back then for more updates or subscribe to our email list HERE and we will send you information closer to November.


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:

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 National Shows 2 productions* (60 – 80 shows in 2019). 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 even before venue or artist pre-sale tickets. You can conveniently do this online, in person or by phone. Purchasing a Best Friend Program does not get you a specific seat, but will allow you to choose a seat within your chosen section.

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