PRESS RELEASE

Under the artistic direction of John Stanley Ross, the Charlotte Pride Band closes this season with a “Spring Fling” concert. This concert serves “lighter fare” with fun works by George Gershwin (“Porgy and Bess”), Karl King (“Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite”), Joseph Wilcox Jenkins (“American Overture for Band”), Gustav Holst (“First Suite in E-flat”) and Steven Bryant (“Suite Dreams”).

Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the door or online at http://www.charlotteprideband.org/!tickets/. CPB has approximately 50 members drawn from the greater Charlotte’s LGBTQI community and ally supporters.

The band is performing in Rowe Recital Hall (in the Rowe Arts Building) on the campus of UNC Charlotte. Rowe is located at 9119 University Road (adjacent to Robinson Hall and across from Belk Plaza). Enter the campus via the main gate off University City Boulevard. The closest parking decks are Cone (on University Road) and East Deck (on Van Landingham Road). Parking is free.  If coming via the light rail, exit at the UNCC Main Station. It’s approximately a 20 minute walk to Rowe Arts Building. However, you may take the campus bus at no charge. Buses run every 8 minutes. Exit at stop 39 (Robinson Hall). When returning to the station, be sure to take the green route bus.
