The Charlotte Symphony Chamber Chorus will perform the 2008 piece "little match girl passion" by living American composer David Lang. The story is the traditional one of "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Anderson; however, this choral work goes beyond tradition. This beautiful, unique, Pulitzer Prize-winning telling of the tale will open eyes and hearts to the issues of poverty, child welfare, and many others. As Lang once wrote, "What drew me to the story is that its strength lies not in the plot, but in the fact that all its parts -- the horror and the beauty -- are constantly suffused with their opposites. The girl's bitter present is locked together with the sweetness of her past memories; her poverty is always suffused with her hopefulness. There is a kind of naive equilibrium between suffering and hope." Under the direction of Dr. Kenney Potter, the Charlotte Symphony Chamber Chorus is a world-class group of 28 Charlotte vocalists. Tickets are $10.
