Of Time and Space


An evening of celestial music. Travel with us to a galaxy not so far, far away.


 


February 12th


7:30PM


First United Methodist Church


501 N. Tryon St., Charlotte, NC  


On December 21, 1968, NASA launched Apollo 8 into space, where it became the first manned spacecraft to leave Earth’s gravity, orbit the moon, and return safely to Earth. Astronauts Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders thus became the first humans to witness and photograph an Earthrise. They also made a historic Christmas Eve television broadcast, which at the time was the most watched program ever. Some of us remember the absolute thrill of that moment, which just celebrated its 50th anniversary.


On February 12th, under the direction of Dr. Kenney Potter, the Charlotte Master Chorale brings that experience to life with a program that will transport you into the galaxy. Join us as the Charlotte Master Chorale and Chamber Singers share the stage with the Arts Plus Charlotte Children’s Choir  in a concert that celebrates human curiosity and our fascination with outer space.

There Will Be Rest,by Frank Ticheli


Close your eyes and lose yourself in the cosmos.


Stars, by Ēriks Ešenvalds


This piece captures the glowing simplicity of ‘a heaven full of stars’ with ‘beating hearts of fire.’
