North Carolina may be the only state in the union to have a publicly funded charanga orchestra: Charanga Carolina, UNC's Latin ensemble, plays their first concert of the season this Thursday (9/16) in Durham, at the neighboring NCCU campus.
Charanga Carolina @ NCCU last April
Thursday's concert celebrates Hispanic heritage month at NC Central's "Fiesta Pachanga." The Fiesta from 5-9 pm includes Latin American food, and is free and open to the public. Charanga Carolina performs from 6-7 pm in the lobby of the Alfonso Elder Student Union.
I visited a Charanga rehearsal a few weeks ago, and saw many returning faces, along with a few new ones. Looking forward to hearing the new group in action.
WHAT: Charanga Carolina
WHEN: Thursday, 9/16, 6:00 - 7:00 pm
WHERE: Alfonso Elder Student Union Lobby, North Carolina Central University, Durham, NC
Admission: Free. Open to the public.
