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.

Students Recognized at Data Analytics Competition

A team of four UNC Charlotte students was recognized with the People’s Choice Award in the 2016 Teradata University Network (TUN) Data Challenge, an international data analytics competition.

Laxmi Narayana Atluri, Sri Harsha Degala, Vrushali Sawant and Freddy Cabrera, all graduate students in data science and business analytics, demonstrated their findings at the 2016 Teradata PARTNERS Conference and Expo, and won the support of 3,500 of the world’s most advanced data and analytics experts and business leaders.

Student advisor and Belk College of Business Associate Professor of Management Information Systems Kexin Zhao said UNC Charlotte’s recognition is proof of the University’s success in preparing students to meet the demand for "big data" experts. "The outstanding performance of our students indicates UNC Charlotte's commitment and ability to produce the world's best analytics professionals," Zhao said.
