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 season. 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.
