UI Co-Sponsoring Symposium on Charlotte Migration

Many parts of the Carolinas, including the Charlotte region, are seeing a huge influx of newcomers. Who’s moving in and from where? How are they reshaping decades-old demographic patterns?

The UNC Charlotte Urban Institute is joining several other local sponsors to offer a lunchtime symposium on Wednesday, Oct. 26, that will examine Charlotte-area population migration. Rebecca Tippett, director of demography, the Carolina Population Center at UNC Chapel Hill, will be the key presenter. She regularly writes and presents about the impact of demographic and social trends in North Carolina.

The event begins at 11:30 AM at UNC Charlotte Center City and includes lunch. Cost is $15 for those registering by Friday, Oct. 14, and $20 for later registrations.

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.
