CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - This season, the Charlotte Symphony is making a big noise in the community, offering cheap tickets and fun family entertainment.
"The value you get from the symphony in terms of the product that we produce, I think can't be beat, really," said Jacomo Bairos, assistant conductor of the Charlotte Symphony.
"There's nothing else for children in Charlotte that is like this," said Meg Whalen, the Director of Public Relations for the symphony. She says the goal is simple: to make music as accessible as possible.
"Yes there are people that are turned off by what they think of as the staid or reserved or very serious orchestral concerts, but we have a lot of concerts that are really very different," she said.
