PRE-CONCERT TALKS


The Charlotte Symphony is committed to delivering exceptional musical experiences. By sharing information and the exciting stories behind the music before each Classical series concert, we hope concertgoers will feel more connected to the in-concert experience.

Resident Conductor Christopher James Lees, or a guest conductor or artist, leads a discussion about the evening's repertoire and composers an hour prior to the performance.

The Founders Room

Belk Theater pre-concert talks take place in the Founders Room. From the Belk Theater Box Office, continue straight towards the back of the theater and take a right into Founder's Hall. The Founders Room will be on your right. Blumenthal Performing Arts offers for-purchase beverages in the Founders Room prior to each Classical Series pre-concert talk.

Wells Fargo Pre-Function Space

Knight Theater pre-concert talks take place in the Wells Fargo Pre-Function Space. Once you enter the Knight Theater by the Box Office, take the stairs on your right down one level.
