"Charlotte Symphony in Performance" on 89.9 WDAV

We're partnering with WDAV "Classical 89.9" to bring a collection of archival CSO concerts to the public in this time of social distancing. These full concerts, hosted by Mike McKay, air every Friday at 8 pm on WDAV. View the schedule here.

                       

A Symphony A Part 

On April 17th at 3 pm, members of the Charlotte Symphony played Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony from wherever they were sheltering in place. Without seeing or hearing one another, each musician played their part, held space for their colleagues, and trusted that they were connected by the wholeness of the score.

"A Symphony A Part is meant to show our gratitude for music, one another, the Charlotte Symphony, and the communities to which we belong. As we shelter in place, we remain present. We are tuning into Beethoven's symphony, the sounds of our respective neighborhoods, and each other. We are happy to share this living archive, which we hope will offer a portal into this moment."
