The first of a series of community meetings will be held Wednesday for a proposed new charter school in downtown Charleston.

The proposed Allegro Charter School for Music would serve students in grades 6-12 and provide an academic curriculum that focuses on music and creativity.

The first of four informational meetings will be held Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Main Branch of the Charleston County Public Library at 68 Calhoun St. A second meeting will be held at the library May 20 at 5:30 p.m. Additional meetings will be held May 3 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Arthur W. Christopher Community Center at 256 Fishburne St. and May 14 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Marshall Walker Real Estate at 582 Rutledge Ave.
