On December 21, 1968, NASA launched Apollo 8 into space, where it became the first manned spacecraft to leave Earth’s gravity, orbit the moon, and return safely to Earth. Astronauts Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders thus became the first humans to witness and photograph an Earthrise. They also made a historic Christmas Eve television broadcast, which at the time was the most watched program ever. Some of us remember the absolute thrill of that moment, which just celebrated its 50th anniversary.
On February 12th, under the direction of Dr. Kenney Potter, the Charlotte Master Chorale brings that experience to life with a program that will transport you into the galaxy. Join us as the Charlotte Master Chorale and Chamber Singers share the stage with the Arts Plus Charlotte Children’s Choir in a concert that celebrates human curiosity and our fascination with outer space.

A few weeks ago, the Charlotte Master Chorale Board of Directors pledged $10,000 to match each and every gift made before December 31, 2018. Through gifts received from donors and friends, we exceeded our goal and raised $12,855 to continue our efforts to enrich the community through choral music.
