Planning ahead: À la carte

À la carte continues its second season at 7:30 pm in our Sanctuary Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018.

What is À la carte?

À la carte seeks to promote musical selections not often heard, mixing styles and genres under the belief that all well-crafted music is valuable and worthy of presentation to the curious public. At an À la carte concert, expect something old (early music), something new (premieres!), something borrowed (world music) or something blue (Jazz and popular music).

À la carte is directed by Clara O’Brien, internationally recognized mezzo-soprano and UNCG professor of voice, and Dr. Lance Hulme, professor of music at North Carolina Central University and prize-winning composer with many international performances to his credit. 

Together with Prof. O’Brien and Dr. Hulme, À la carte draws on the finest professional performers from the Triad area and beyond. We also promote emerging artists who are of the highest quality. Rest of season: April 19, 2018, 7:30 pm.
