Some of Mecklenburg County’s best student musicians will put on a show April 23.
“A Musical Showcase” will be held at Belk Theatre in the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. The program, which honors Charlotte Concerts advisory board member Jim Babb, is open to all Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students who participate in band, orchestra and chorus.
Tickets are $10-$30 depending on seating location. To order or for information on the showcase, contact Diane Lumpkin Peery at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (704) 527-6680.
The showcase includes 15 elementary, middle school and high school instrumental and choral ensembles, which were picked by a panel of judges from a roster of blind audio submissions by CMS music instructors. Each ensemble will earn a $500 grant. During rehearsals on performance day, the high school students will have a chance to meet admissions officials from 14 North Carolina colleges to talk about enrollment opportunities.
