Musical forces are summoned to great effect on the next Carolina Live, as the Firebird Arts Alliance brings together in Charlotte the choral group VOX, the Firebird Arts Sinfonia and two talented soloists for works by Arnold Schonberg and Gustav Mahler. We then hear music from Columbia’s Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, where several massed choirs are joined by the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra and soloists for two works by Johann Sebastian Bach.
