The Artistic Heartbeat of Charleston: 2022-23 SOTA Event Season

After a triumphant season last year, the College of Charleston School of the Arts is delighted to continue presenting meaningful, unique performances and visual arts events, featuring acclaimed professionals as well as budding student scholars. Immerse yourself in our 2022-2023 arts season while supporting academic and cultural excellence!


Nestled in the heart of Charleston’s historic district, our School provides students the opportunity to study and live in an architectural and cultural environment rarely found in North America. We have meaningful partnerships and relationships with the city’s leading cultural institutions in which many students, faculty, staff and alumni are involved. In addition, we are the area’s largest year-round presenter of arts events, exposing students and the community to high-caliber local and international talent. For these and many other reasons, the School of the Arts is The Artistic Heartbeat of Charleston.
