R. Nathaniel DETT: The Ordering of Moses (North Carolina Premiere)

Leonard BERNSTEIN: Chichester Psalms

Celebrating the Oratorio Singers’ and Charlotte Master Chorale’s over seven decades of performing choral-orchestral masterworks, the Legacy Concert series continues with an examination of freedom and oppression across communities featuring Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and the North Carolina premiere of R. Nathaniel Dett’s long-neglected oratorio The Ordering of Moses, which builds on the spiritual “Go Down, Moses” to portray the liberation of the Hebrews from bondage in Egypt.

*The pre-concert talk is led by Dr. Marques L. A. Garrett, Associate Professor of Choral Studies at the University of North Texas and noted Dett scholar.

This concert is presented in partnership with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and the Gambrell Center of Queens University of Charlotte  with special performances by collegiate singers from Queens University of Charlotte and UNC Charlotte and is made possible, in part, with funding from ASC and the N.C. Arts Council a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, and the Sally Ann and Joe Hall Fund of the Charlotte Symphony’s Endowment.
