The Charlotte Symphony and Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) will offer a new chamber series for the 2017-18 season. The Connor Chamber Series is an extension of the already existing partnership between CPCC and the Symphony in an effort to reach new, diverse audiences and share music with the whole community.
The series is made possible by ardent supporters of both organizations, Catherine and Wilton Connor.
“Chamber orchestra performances combine the creativity, talent, and discipline found in all classical music, but the experience is more intimate and personal,” says Catherine Connor.
The first of two Connor Chamber Series performances in 2017-18 will take place on Sunday, October 15, 2017, at 3 p.m. in Tate Hall on CPCC’s Central Campus.
The program will feature Charlotte Symphony Concertmaster Calin Lupanu in a play/conduct performance of works by Elgar, Shostakovich, and Britten. A reception will follow the performance and give audience members the chance to meet Symphony musicians.
The second performance will take place on Sunday, March 11, 2018, at 3 p.m. in Tate Hall. Charlotte Symphony Assistant Conductor Christopher James Lees will conduct.
