The Charlotte Children's Choir is a nonprofit organization that provides music education to Charlotte's youth, ages 8-18. Their education is performance based.

The Charlotte Folk Society, conceived in 1982, preserves and promotes the traditional folk arts in the Piedmont region, including music, crafts, dance and folklore.

With such a rich regional musical history, this should be a great concert!
