Charlotte Concerts: Violinist Ray Chen

1eda2a2d-14f6-47e9-a6c8-0c977af1eb69-1For over eight decades under a number of different names Charlotte Concerts has bought world-renowned classical musicians to the Queen City. Virtuoso Ray Chen played the second program of their 2012-2013 season in the Halton Theater at Central Piedmont Community College with sonatas by Mozart and Brahms as well as two crowd-pleasers by Saint-Saëns. Then the student musicians of the Davidson College Choral Arts Society, Singers and Pro Arte Orchestra amaze in a performance of Duruflé’s immortal Requiem.
