R. Nathaniel DETT: The Ordering of Moses (North Carolina Premiere)
Leonard BERNSTEIN: Chichester Psalms

The Charlotte Master Chorale presents 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.

This concert is presented in partnership with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and collegiate singers from 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
