The concert is scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 24 at Truist Field in uptown. The symphony’s music director, Christopher Warren-Green, will conduct and Charlotte-based opera singer Jennifer Wiggins will perform.

Wiggins will open the show with the “Star Spangled Banner,” and the program will also include Nkeiru Okoye’s “Charlotte Mecklenburg,” a piece commissioned by the symphony for Charlotte’s 250th anniversary.

The hourlong concert will end with a fireworks display.

The symphony and Knights will invite a number of health care workers who have served our community throughout the COVID-19 crisis to attend the concert at no cost.

The two organizations have worked in coordination with Atrium Health to develop safety procedures, including limited seating capacity to allow for physical distancing. Concertgoers will also be required to wear face masks or coverings.

Tickets cost $20 for adults and $10 for children age 12 and younger.
