Mar 28, 2022

By Rachel Stewart, WDAV -- 

After 35 years, Alan Black is retiring as principal cello of the Charlotte Symphony. Before he transitions to his new role as cello section player, he'll be in the spotlight at the Charlotte Symphony's "Music and Healing" concert at Queens University. He'll be the soloist for the premiere of a work written for him by South Carolina composer Leonard Mark Lewis called "I Will Wade Out." Black talks about his collaboration with Lewis. And he reflects on his long career in Charlotte explaining why this is a good time for him to pass the baton to new leadership in the cello section.
