Love coming here for a date night. I prefer the balcony seating, however, there arent any bad seats in the house from the times Ive went. Saw last nights pop concert series performance of John Williams Unlimited. Tend to go to the more traditional performances, but I enjoyed the brief explanations before the pieces. I think the Charlotte pops series helps encourage people that may not otherwise come out and experience the orchestra! The orchestra did a fantastic job on these technical pieces. They even had Star Wars characters dresses up before the show and on stage during the performance. It is the most fun Ive had at an orchestra in some time! I will attending more pop series in the future. My boyfriend who did not grow up playing in orchestra also really appreciated it!
I went recently for the music of John Williams and I was definitely not disappointed. They orchestra brought back a lot of memories as they took us on a journey through some of my favorite movies. The conductors knowledge of the movies and the fun they had with the Star Wars characters were nice touches to a great evening. Cant wait to go again.

The Charlotte Symphony was a wonderful experience. My wife and I attended the performance of Mendelssohn's Elijah at the Belk theater and the performance was amazing. The theater has great acoustics and the sound was perfect. Everyone involved with the event did a fantastic job and I could see they enjoyed show casing their craft. If you have an opportunity to see any shows there you will definitely enjoy yourself.
I love my Charlotte Symphony! We are so lucky to have them in this city!!
I attended last night's Messiah performance. It was lovely. Thank you. One question: the program did not give credit to the person who played the harpsichord,; who was that? Was that an organ she was also playing?
