For its 2013 festival and concert, the Celebrate Freedom Foundation presents Five By Design with the S.C. Philharmonic in “Live! From the Ultra Lounge” 8 p.m. Saturday, June 15 at the Koger Center.

"Mack the Knife," "Mambo Italiano," "Danke Schoen,” "Just One of Those Things,” and “Istanbul (Not Constantinople” will awaken the audience’s desire for sandy beaches and crashing surf.
