Although Labor Day, marking the unofficial end of summer is over, there are still lots of events happening in the Charlotte area. “All Things Considered” host Gwendolyn Glenn and Jodie Valade, co-writer of WFAE’s arts and entertainment newsletter Tapestry, go through this weekend’s slate of events. One highlighted by “Wicked” coming to Ovens Auditorium and Historic Brattonsville’s annual festival to celebrate the heritage of local African Americans.

To hear the full conversation, listen to the audio above.

The Tony Award-winning “Wicked” is the first Broadway show in Charlotte in nearly two years. The musical gives viewers the backstory to the “Wizard Of Oz” and gives a good look at character motivations.

“You kind of understand these characters as people,” Valade said, “rather than one-dimensional names that you see in a movie.”

“Wicked” will be at the Ovens Auditorium until the middle of October.

Other events this weekend include:

  • JazzArts Charlotte’s Jazz Room returns with an explosive show featuring New Orleans’ Trumpet Mafia and your favorite jazz classics. Joined by the region’s top jazz trumpeters, the event will celebrate the relaunch of the Jazz Room. 

“Together they’re (Trumpet Mafia) known for playing some unexpected arrangements that mix traditional jazz and hip-hop styles,” Valade said.

  • There are numerous memorials dedicated  to the remembrance of 9/11.
  • The town of McConnells, South Carolina, is hosting “By the Sweat of Their Brows,” which celebrates descendants of the African American community in the town’s Historic Brattonsville.
