Charlotte Symphony opens doors with 2015-16 season preview party

Posted on: September 16, 2015

North Carolina’s Charlotte Symphony will hold “Symphony on Tap,” a free season preview party, on September 16 at the Belk Theater in Charlotte. Music Director Christopher Warren-Green will conduct a casual, hour-long concert featuring selections from the orchestra’s 2015-16 Classics, Pops, and KnightSounds series, including music by Beethoven, Prokofiev, and Copland, as well as a James Bond medley. Bars inside the theater will be open during the event, and there will be an after-party in the theater lobby where audience members can meet orchestra musicians. The after-party will include free appetizers and live music by Charlotte Symphony musician Rick Dior’s Latin quartet. Before the one-hour concert, a brass-ensemble will perform Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man outside the theater. Doors to the theater will remain open during the concert, to allow people to come and go. “This concert is something new for the Symphony,” said Charlotte Symphony President and CEO Bob Stickler. “We are hoping it will not only give the community a sense of what’s in store for the season, but also introduce the symphony to new audiences.”
