Fall 2020 Virtual Performances

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Charlotte community has lost a valuable intrinsic resource...the live in-person performance experience. While nothing can directly replace that, this unprecedented situation has also opened new avenues for Charlotte Master Chorale to share our message of hope and healing this fall. Through concerts presented via the internet, Charlotte Master Chorale will be making our music accessible to an even broader audience. These events will be free to view.

Christmas with the Charlotte Master Chorale

Christmas with the Charlotte Master Chorale

Premiering Saturday, December 19, 2020, Christmas with the Charlotte Master Chorale will feature all of the ensembles of the Charlotte Master
 Chorale and will serve to quench the thirst for “live” Christmas music. This production will highlight some of the great carols of the season, as well as inspiring seasonal repertoire that promotes hope, love, joy, and peace. We hope this annual event will serve as a pillar in the December concert season.
