It’s time for an annual holiday tradition, Magic of Christmas! This year is featuring the Charlotte Symphony, Charlotte Symphony Chorus, Charlotte Children’s Choir, soloist and crooner Michael Andrew, and the Martha Connerton/Kinetic Works dancers. Don’t miss this seasonal tradition as spirited conductor Albert-George Schram leads the Symphony.
New this season, the Symphony welcomes swingin’ jazz singer Michael Andrew. Citing Mel Tormé and Frank Sinatra as inspirations, this popular crooner is perhaps best known for the two years he spent headlining at the Rainbow Room in New York City. Andrew will join in the fun with renditions of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” and “White Christmas.”
Husband-and-wife choral directors Kenney and Heather Potter have prepared the talented Charlotte Symphony Chorus and Charlotte Children’s Choir of Community School of the Arts, respectively, and the two ensembles will join forces for “Do You Hear What I Hear,” “In The Bleak Midwinter,” and more.
Watch as the Martha Connerton/Kinetic Works company dances, and wait for goosebumps as you listen to the Charlotte Symphony Chorus perform Morten Lauridsen’s moving “O Magnum Mysterium,” plus songs from It’s a Wonderful Life and Frozen. It will be a diverse holiday experience the whole family will enjoy!
