CHARLOTTE—The Queen City's own royal wedding conductor is back in Charlotte.
Charlotte Symphony conductor Christopher Warren-Green was an important part of the music heard during last week's Royal wedding. Warren-Green was commissioned to lead the orchestra at Westminister Abbey. He said he has heard only positive feedback of his performance, especially from the Royal family.
“I remember seeing them, they were so delighted with the music and that meant the most to me because the last five months I have been panicking whether it was going to work at all, but it did,” said Warren-Green.
Warren-Green has a long history with Royal family. Thirty years ago, he met Prince Charles after his orchestra was invited to play at Buckingham Palace. The Prince has been asking him to pull together music for events ever since.
Warren-Green said he does not plan on taking time-off and will be conducting the Charlotte Symphony next weekend.
