In honor of Pride month, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art invites the community to the museum for a special Wednesday Night Live Pride Celebration featuring performances by the Charlotte Pride Band. Enjoy a large ensemble performance on the Bechtler Plaza, a brass quintet and wind quintet inside the museum’s lobby, and a special small chamber ensemble collaboration with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra in the museum galleries.

The Bechtler’s current exhibition features writer, journalist, photographer, traveler, cosmopolitan and lesbian icon Annemarie Schwarzenbach (1908-1942), who was one of the most dazzling and contradictory figures in modern European cultural history.

Since 2010, Charlotte Pride Band has cultivated an open, inviting environment for musicians of all ability levels while promoting the value and respect of LGBTQIA+ people in the Charlotte metropolitan area through quality musical performances.

CPB performs four full-ensemble concerts each year under the direction of Artistic Director John Stanley Ross and Assistant Artistic Director O’Shae Best. The band also marches in area parades, supports local causes with pep band performances, and provides music for private events using a variety of small ensembles.
