International Violin Prodigy Chad Hoopes to Perform
January 20, 2012- Escape the winter blues (and the cold) with a night of passionate music celebrating youth and vitality. On February 3 and 4 at 8 p.m. at the Belk Theater, the Charlotte Symphony presents a program to beat the blues and invigorate the spirit.
Since winning the Young Artists Division of the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition at 13 years old, violin prodigy Chad Hoopes has embarked on a performing career with the world’s greatest orchestras. Now 17 Hoopes will join the Charlotte Symphony for a dazzling display of virtuosity, performing the famous Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.
Also featured on the program are Strauss’s Don Juan, which tells the dangerous story of the infamous womanizer and Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, a work that conveys the essence of the artist and effectively stirs the human spirit.
Join the Symphony and Maestro Christopher Warren-Green for a night of brilliant music-making and a special post-concert reception and announcement of the 2012-13 Classics Season.
A pre-concert Musically Speaking Chat will begin at 7 p.m. inside the theater on the Orchestra level.
Tickets start at $26.50 and are available by calling the Charlotte Symphony Ticket Office at (704) 972-2000, or at www.charlottesymphony.org.
