Women’s Chorus to Sing National Anthem at April 16 Knights Game

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

The Charlotteans, the UNC Charlotte Women’s Chorus, will sing the National Anthem for the Charlotte Knights baseball game on Monday, April 16, at the Knights’ BB&T Ballpark. The game, against the Rochester Red Wings, starts at 7:04 pm.

Directed by Ginger Wyrick, The Charlotteans is a Liberal Studies course open to students in any major. For the National Anthem performance, the current chorus will be joined by returning alumni.

“We have created a great adventure out of this opportunity,” said Wyrick. “Traveling uptown on the new Lynx Blue Line extension, we will depart from the campus station around 5:00 pm. We plan to include singing en route to the game, Facebook Live and Instagram posts.”

The Charlotteans will perform an end-of-year concert in the Belk Theater in Robinson Hall on April 28. Tickets are $8 and are available at the Robinson Hall box office.
