harlotte Concerts is our city’s original presenting arts organization, and this
and changed, but we’ve never deviated from our special mission. Not only do we
present the very finest in performing arts from around the world (this season even
more so)
so), but we actively promote music education outreach programs that enrich
the lives of thousands of students in the greater Charlotte area schools every year.
This season, you’ll have the opportunity to hear the cutting edge of modern classical
performance with a unique piano duo, and Baroque masterpieces played by (surprise!)
a jazz powerhouse. You’ll experience two world renowned orchestras, one classical
and one jazz. And, in a finale worthy of our 85th season, you’ll witness the passionate
pairing of piano and cello in a performance by two of the world’s greatest young
chamber musicians.
Charlotte Concerts is the jewel in the crown of our city’s arts community because
Charlotte Concerts is a shining example of what an arts organization can be. You
should join us. Become a valued part of our 85th season (the best season yet!), and
experience the additional satisfaction of supporting music and music education in
your own community.

losing the curtain on Charlotte Concerts’ 85th season are two of the world’s
poet of the keyboard: refined, searching, and unfailingly communicative.” His sincerity
and expressiveness bring audiences into each phrase as if hearing it for the first time.
Such musicality is amply supported by his incredible, virtuoso technical abilities.
Barnatan has been named the New York Philharmonic’s first Artist in Association, and
has performed with many of the world’s leading orchestras. Cellist Alisa Weilerstein’s
passion, commitment and breathtaking technique combined with undeniable musicianship make her one of today’s most exciting artists. A 2011 MacArthur Fellowship
recipient, she is also an exclusive recording artist for Decca Classics and has performed
with the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, among others. Together, these two artists offer an alluring and passionate
musical event not to be missed!

serve these students -- our students -- and make certain they achieve that which

our entire local music education community. We bring hope and make dreams come
