Charlotte Symphony to Perform Free Concert
The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra will come to the UNC Charlotte campus for a free lunchtime performance at 12:30 PM, Wednesday, Oct. 5, in the Belk Theater of the Robinson Hall for the Performing Arts.
The concert’s kaleidoscopic program will include short sections from Mozart’s "Jupiter" Symphony, Vivaldi’s "Four Seasons," Stravinsky’s "Firebird Suite" and "West Side Story." A contemporary piece by Michigan-based composer Kristin Kuster (b. 1973) and "Lyric for Strings" by the black American composer George Walker (b. 1922) also will be featured.
The College of Arts + Architecture is hosting this event for the campus community.
Graduate Life Fellows Focused on Building Community
This year’s cohort of seven Graduate Life Fellows (GLFs) is focused on building community among their fellow students.
Through the Center for Graduate Life, the GLFs provide leadership-building opportunities through collaborative efforts with campus partners, including faculty, staff, graduate student organizations and various campus offices.
This fall, along with promoting local campaign efforts designed to give back to UNC Charlotte’s graduate community, the GLFs will spearhead “UNC Charlotte’s Got Your Back,” a major crowdfunding initiative that will provide Charlotte’s most at-risk elementary school children with basic educational resources. The initiative also will provide these children with exposure to real students in higher education who will their stories and offer reasons why they should never give up on their dreams.
