By The Charleston Symphony Orchestra for The Island Connection
The 2021 Symphony Tour of Homes on Kiawah Island, now in its 24th year, will be held on Saturday, Nov. 13. Susan Leggett, the 2021 Event Chair comments, “The Tour is a fun way to explore the beauty of Kiawah Island while supporting the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. The homes on the Tour feature dazzling architecture and gorgeous views of the Island.” The self-guided tour will showcase a variety of beautifully decorated homes, reflecting the varied interests and lifestyles of their owners. Music will be played by symphony musicians and talented music students in the homes. A variety of home architecture and designer styles will be included. And, while on the tour, guests will have an opportunity to shop for unique, design-inspired and one-of-a kind items from the Charleston Symphony Orchestra League’s (CSOL) exclusive SCORE collection.
The tour will be followed at 5 p.m. by a free concert presented by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra at the new West Beach Conference Center. Advance tickets for the Home Tour are $55 through Nov. 6 and will be available at csolinc.org. Tickets can also be purchased at Indigo Books in Freshfields Village or the Kiawah Island Municipal Center on Betsy Kerrison Parkway. Tickets will be sold the day of the event on Freshfields Village Green for $60 each. The Charleston Symphony Orchestra is one of the very few symphonies in America to continue offering live concerts to the public through the pandemic. They return this year with two exciting new concert schedules, classical and pop. All the proceeds from this event will support the Symphony and scholarships for talented student musicians in the Lowcountry. Guests will first pick up tickets and programs for the self-guided tour at Freshfields Village and then proceed to the homes and experience the beauty of various corners of Kiawah Island. The safety of tour guests, homeowners, volunteers and musicians is a priority. The CSOL will work within the set framework of requirements recommended by the CDC and local health organizations and will be consistent with the Town of Kiawah Island and the Community Association.
Compliance will be in place and enforced at all tour and celebration locations.
