CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte Symphony announced on Thursday that they will welcome audiences to watch performances in-person once again at the Belk Theater on April 24th and May 14th-15th.
Representatives say these performances mark the first time audiences have been able to attend an indoor concert since March 7th of 2020, with the first concert on April 24th featuring Resident Conductor Christopher James Lee leading the Orchestra in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3, Strassburg.
“These performances are going to be very emotional for all of us,” said Music Director
Christopher Warren-Green. “For the past 13 months, we’ve been connecting with our audiences
through virtual concerts and in small groups, but I cannot wait to safely reconnect with our CSO
family in person – to feel the energy of an audience from the podium again – I’ve missed it so
Warren-Green will be joined onstage by Grammy-Award winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis to perform Ibert’s Concertino da camera and Schulhoff’s jazz-inspired Hot-Sonate at the next two concerts held by the CSO on Friday, May 14th and Saturday May 15th.
The Charlotte Symphony will also host its three-concert mini-series, Evenings at the Park, featuring classical works on May 7th, May 21st, and May 28th, 2021.
The CSO reminds everyone in-person tickets to the first concert on April 24th, 2021 will only be available to Charlotte Symphony subscribers, and tickets for all other events are on sale here.
