We are excited to announce that in celebration of our 50th Anniversary, the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra will grace the stage at the Stanly County Agri-Civic Center (26032 Newt Rd, Albemarle, NC) for a full length evening performance on Saturday, September 14, 2024, at 7:00 pm with the “How We Got Here:  A Journey through Sound & Time.” This program will include selections by classic masters of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, as well as favorites by Tchaikovsky, John Phiip Sousa, Copland, Duke Ellington, and John Williams, as well as a few more surprises.

With our mission being “to encourage and promote broad-based cultural and educational activities in the arts throughout Stanly County” we wanted to make sure that everyone would be able to partake in this opportunity. Our goal was to ensure that ticket prices were not cost prohibitive. Fortunately, the local business community recognized the importance of this concert previously and again this year. Their generosity ensured that financially we could afford to bring this concert to the local community. First Bank is our Maestro (title) sponsor. Dr. John Kilde of Charlotte Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat, Visit Stanly, and Atrium Health-Stanly are our Concertmaster sponsors, and our Principal sponsors include Uwharrie Bank, Stanly Community College, NJR Group, Farm Bureau Insurance – Jason Silver,  and Union Power.  Our media sponsors are the Stanly News and Press and 1010WSPC/WZKY1580am & 103.3 FM. 

Pfeiffer University is excited to be this year’s Student Ticket sponsor. This sponsorship allows any student in Stanly County from Kindergarten through seniors in high school to receive a free ticket to the performance with a paying adult. These tickets will be made available at the schools the first week of September.  As part of the sponsorship, Pfeiffer University students also receive free admission just by showing their student ID at the door.

Everyone should enjoy the majesty of hearing a Symphonic Orchestra in person. We are looking forward to the program that resident conductor Christopher James Lees put together for us. 

We are grateful for the support of the community in welcoming back the Charlotte Symphony to Stanly County.
