This unique gathering of musicians will be on Saturday, January 31st, 2015 at 8PM (doors open at 7PM) at the Charleston Music Hall, located at 37 John Street in downtown Charleston, SC, 29403. Tickets go on sale December 19th at 10AM. Ticket prices range from $15 for students with a valid ID to $50 for VIP.

MUSICAL ACTS

The Groundhog Day Concert will feature music by The Opposite of a Train (Bill Carson, Nathan Koci, and Ron Wiltrout) along with performances by Owen Beverly, Jack Burg, John Cobb, Michael Flynn, Clint Fore, Joel Hamilton, Kevin Hamilton, Lindsay Holler, Rachel Kate Gillon, Jonathan Gray, Mark Sterbank, and Stephanie Underhill. The night will also feature a special cameo performance from Mr. Bonetangles by puppeteer Will Schutze.

The evening’s musical director Bill Carson says, “This concert is a way for the local music community to show its support for the fantastic contemporary arts programming that the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art provides year-round, and year after year. The Halsey often collaborates with musicians, actors, filmmakers, architects, designers, and others to create its unique multi-disciplinary offerings. The participating musicians all want to shine the spotlight on the Halsey Institute in gratitude for their dynamic and inspirational role in this community.”

Stage set designed by Sisal & Tow.

“Groundhog Day is an underappreciated and much overlooked holiday,“ says Halsey Institute Director Mark Sloan, with a chuckle. “The Halsey Institute would like to draw attention by celebrating our third Groundhog Day concert with a special, intimate evening of music. This concert will be a rare opportunity to experience an exceptional collection of musical talent sharing one stage in a single evening.”

On the day of the event, the doors will open at 7PM. Tickets are $15 for students, $20 for the Gallery section, $30 for Orchestra, and $50 for limited VIP tickets. Student tickets include any age student and seating is only in the Gallery.
