A Very Special Thank you...
 
The Charleston Symphony Orchestra League, Inc. is pleased to present its 38th Charleston Symphony Designer Showhouse (DSH). This event is our largest fundraiser benefitting the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, music education programs and scholarships for continued study for young music students and CSO musicians. Each year, our designers perform their magic, melding 19th-century elements with 21st-century design. The DSH Design Committee works closely with them to enhance the house's architecture and history, as well as its design transformation. In addition, scores of people work behind the scenes by providing professional services and serving as committee members, docents, sales associates, and wait staff in the café. We are indebted to all who generously give of their time and talent, and to our visitors who make it all worthwhile.

We are very grateful to everyone in the community who donated their products and services or who contributed in some way in helping us bring about our 38th Annual Symphony Designer Showhouse. It is truly a community-wide effort. Our most sincere thanks go to:
