Gaston Gazette: Choral students to sing with Charlotte Symphony ChorusNov 16, 2015
The concerts, which will feature the Fauré Requiem, will mark the debut of the 2015-16 Young Artists in Residence program, a new immersive choral initiative of the Charlotte Symphony Chorus.
Students who won auditions come from Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Gaston County schools and have spent the last two months rehearsing the Requiem weekly with the Charlotte Symphony Chorus.
"It has been a pleasure to work with these fine young musicians," says Kenney Potter, director of choruses for the Charlotte Symphony. "This is a great opportunity for them to perform Fauré's choral masterwork in a professional-caliber setting with the Charlotte Symphony and Charlotte Symphony Chorus."
The 2015-16 Charlotte Symphony Chorus Young Artists in Residence from Gaston County are:
- Jacob Dyksterhouse, bass, Stuart W. Cramer High School
- Hannah Keel, soprano, South Point High School
Other works on the program include Butterworth's "A Shropshire Lad" and "Ravel's Mother Goose Suite." Music Director Christopher Warren-Green will conduct.

The Classics concert series is presented to the community by Wells Fargo Private Bank.
