CHARLOTTE SYMPHONY OFFERS FREE COMMUNITY CONCERT FOR PEACE

Sep 22, 2016

September 22, 2016 | CHARLOTTE, NC—The Charlotte Symphony’s originally scheduled free community concert, Symphony On Tap, slated for Thursday evening has been reprogrammed.  

Instead, Music Director Christopher Warren-Green will lead a free lunchtime program, One Charlotte: A Performance for Peace, on Friday, September 23 at noon at Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center.

“As the city’s orchestra, we have a moral imperative to provide an opportunity for reflection and community,” says Maestro Warren-Green. “Music cares beyond pain.”

The Charlotte Symphony believes in the power of music to unify and heal and invites the whole community to attend this special performance.

“We serve the community as a place where people from all walks of life come together,” says Tom Gabbard, President/CEO of Blumenthal Performing Arts. “At this difficult time, our role has never been more important, and we look forward to welcoming the community to this performance and contributing what we can to Charlotte’s healing.”

This concert is presented to the community by Wells Fargo.
