Classical Concert Series

Our 2018/19 Season is sponsored by

Ensemble Mélange - February 4, 2019

Due to Hurricane Florence, this concert has been rescheduled from September 17, 2018 to February 4, 2019. To all ticket holders, your Sep. 17 tickets may be used to attend this concert.

Ensemble Mélange is a joyful sextet of all-star virtuosos. Ensemble Mélange shakes up the concert experience, forges a personal connection with its audience, and mixes tried-and-true repertoire with a smorgasbord of jewels from distant genres. The concert is reformatted as a musician’s party game; after each piece, members of the audience are chosen to pick the next piece from an extensive menu organized by style, nationality and time period. Whether you’re a purist or a populist, a snob or a noob, eight years old or eighty years old, you’ll leave charmed and punch-drunk on a piece you didn’t know you were going to love.

Lucas Meachem, baritone - March 4, 2019

Grammy-Award winner Lucas Meachem is considered one of the greatest baritones in the world today. Hailed by critics as “vocally faultless and a natural actor” (Classical Chicago Review) with “a clear baritone whose fragments can pierce the soul” (Forum Opera), and “a rock star of opera” (Opera Pulse), his 2017-18 season brings both new and signature repertoire to theaters across the U.S. and Europe. He is a Union Pines High School graduate and studied music at Appalachian State University, the Eastman School of Music and Yale University before becoming an Adler fellow with the San Francisco Opera
