Eye Level Art is celebrating in characteristic good form, and has video proof of why you should get to their 103 Spring Street gallery tonight and tomorrow night: Theatre Marvelosa’s Goth Rock Opera “Dead of the Night.” Check out this video from last night’s performance.

So you think you know spooky? Just wait until you are in costume, masked and cavorting around a seriously haunted old jail, where murderers and criminals waited to be hung in the jail yard…then you will know what it means to be spooked!

Charleston has had a great loss this week. David Stahl, director of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra for the last 25 of the organization’s 75 years, passed away Sunday, October 24. Stahl had a brief and aggressive battle with lymphoma, passing only a month after his wife Karen lost her battle with breast cancer.
Stahl has been integral in the growth of Charleston’s symphony, and it is truly worrisome that his death comes at a time when the future of the CSO is more uncertain than ever. I encourage the city to take up his mantle and fight for the preservation of our superior symphony in his memory.
