Celebrating the Oratorio Singers' and Charlotte Master Chorale's over seven decades of performing choral-orchestral masterworks, our Legacy Concert series continues with an examination of freedom and oppression across communities featuring Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms and the North Carolina premiere of R. Nathaniel Dett's long-neglected oratorio The Ordering of Moses, which builds on the spiritual "Go Down, Moses" to portray the liberation of the Hebrews from bondage in Egypt.
