In this series, we’ll share insider tips on how to make the most of our ensembles based on popular venues around Charleston. Read on for Today’s Field Notes on The Confederate Home + College, located at 62 Broad Street.
Featured Image, Above: Jenniffer and Steve’s Wedding Walk, featuring Charleston Entertainment’s Pop + Classical String Duo! We processed from the Ceremony at the Confederate Home, along the iconic cobblestoned Chalmers Street, to the Hibernian Hall Reception.
The Confederate Home + College, located at 62 Broad Street in the beautiful French Quarter, features an intimate green space and historical interiors with period furnishings and decor. The Home + College features a second entrance at Chalmers street, one of 6 cobblestone streets in the city. It is tucked away from crowds and quite private for being in the middle of the Historic District — a secret treasure and little hide-away that most people never get to see otherwise.
The Home houses individual residents and artist studios, whose doors you can view from the Enclosed courtyard. With this said, it’s important to note that as of January 2022, they do not allow amplified music in this venue. Regardless, acoustic and non-electric instruments happen to be perfectly suited to this space. There is less wind and more acoustic reverb from the walls, so imagine softer instrumentals such as Guitar Duos, Swing-Jazz Combos, Harp, Flute, Piano, Strings, and Vocals.
We love playing here as the setting is quintessential, historic Charleston: cobblestone streets, the thoroughfares of Broad and Meeting, secret courtyards, and period architecture. If you love the idea of our Wedding Parade, or musical accompaniment to walk your guests from Ceremony to Cocktail Hour- Reception, this is one of the top starting points for a scenic and musical walk..!
