UPDATE: Our final concert of the season scheduled for April 19th at the Lowcountry Presbyterian Church in Bluffton has been postponed due to health concerns over the Coronavirus situation. This concert is always one of our more popular events and we will let everyone know when it is rescheduled.
We kicked off 2020 on a high note with singer and recording artist Candace Woodson! The concert was held on January 15th at First Presbyterian Church on Hilton Head Island.
In February, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance era, with a concert featuring Lavon Stevens at the Technical College of the Lowcountry (TCL) Auditorium. Proceeds from the concert benefited the Arts Council of Beaufort County.
Next up, on March 6th, the band will be performing at Sun City's Magnolia Hall, as a fundraiser to benefit the Lion's Club. This concert will start at 7 p.m. and will feature entertainer and singer Bobby Ryder performing popular standards by Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble' and more. This performance is sold out.
The 18-piece all-volunteer Evolution Big Band is regarded as one of the top big bands in the region. Its mission is to support local charitable causes by performing contemporary arrangements of big band music at concerts, dances and private events. Proceeds this year support The Arts Council of Beaufort County and the Lowcountry Youth Jazz Foundation, and others. Since its founding in 2004, the band has raised more than $180,000 for non-profit organizations in the area.
