Charlotte Master Chorale’s annual Unity Concerts aim to create bridges of understanding through shared experiences of choral music. Unity: Earth centers on the themes of sustainability and stewardship, powerfully portrayed in the North Carolina premiere of Jake Runestad’s EMMY Award®-winning Earth Symphony, which imagines Earth’s hope for humanity, her discovery of its power, her ruination at its hands, her lament at its loss, and her recovery.
Featuring high school singers from East Mecklenburg High School, South Mecklenburg High School, Stuart Cramer High School, and Sun Valley High School, this concert is presented in association with Trees Charlotte and is supported by the Infusion Fund and its generous donors.
