Noteworthy - Listen. Love. Take Note.

The NoteWorthy concert series pairs gifted Black and brown artists from Charlotte’s music scene with classically trained musicians. It’s what happens when jazz, R&B, hip-hop, pop, Latin, and soul meet classical.

The NoteWorthy series is a collaboration between WDAV Classical Public Radio and Fair Play Music Equity Initiative. Our shared vision for this project is to build one Charlotte music community that values all voices. To learn more about WDAV and FAIR PLAY happenings that advance diversity, equity, and inclusion, sign up for our NoteWorthy email list.
