Tuesday, March 10

The Oratorio Singers of Charlotte will be on hand to sing excerpts from the score. Don't miss this opportunity to get inside the sounds of the score and the mind of the composer.
Engage with the 150 all-volunteer local musicians who will bring this piece to life for a performance with the Charlotte Symphony on March 27 and 28.
