In the the first half of the 19th century, Charleston, South Carolina, was a wealthy port city and a major arts capital, the site of the first theater building in America. But its monied elite was devastated by war and Reconstruction, and the city’s cultural infrastructure crumbled with it. This fall, Charleston’s renaissance, which began in the ’70s with the launch of the Spoleto Festival USA, will be furthered with the completion of the Gaillard Center, a grand neoclassical performance hall–cum–civic space and the new home of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. The center will host a slate of world-class acts, starting with Yo-Yo Ma on October 18. At 95 Calhoun St.; 843-724-5212; gaillardcenter.com
