Pops concerts tend to be nostalgia fests, so it’s no surprise that the Indigo Girls – who sprang onto the music scene in 1985 – are supplying the newest music in the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra’s 2013-14 Pops season.
Fans of tunes from the ’30s through the ’80s should take notice.
Season tickets for any six concerts run from $147 to $480; you can have all nine from $198 to $657. Subscribers also get an early crack at tickets for Itzhak Perlman’s appearance in February. (Tickets: 704-972-2000 or charlottesymphony.org.)
