Moore Symphony Announces Free Concert
The Moore Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra will perform its spring concert Saturday, May 24, at Sandhills Community College in Moore County. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
"The theme of this year's Spring Concert is 'space,'" said Eric Kopecky, music director and conductor. "There have been a great variety of musical works based on this theme dating back to Haydn and Mozart through modern composers such as John Williams. We plan to gather these pieces together into one grand presentation, with three pieces from three different eras of music with Jupiter as the inspiration"
"A few of the major works to be performed are 'The Jupiter Symphony,' by Mozart, 'Mars' from 'The Planets,' by Gostov Holst, and the themes from modern space movies such as 'Star Wars,' by John Williams," said Kopecky. "These are dynamic works, which the audience should enjoy. The complete program will be posted shortly on our Web site, www.mporchestra.com."
The special guest conductor is Patrice Doherty. She earned this invitation as the winner of the band's silent auction prize at the winter concert.
The spring concert will be the orchestra's first appearance at Sandhills Community College.
"It is an ideal location for us," said Kopecky. "It is easily accessible from anywhere in Moore County, there is comfortable seating, and plenty of convenient lighted parking. We are delighted to bring this very special concert to the community entirely free of charge."
The Moore Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra is an IRS-approved nonprofit community orchestra. The musicians, conductor, and staff are all volunteers. Adult and student musicians are always welcome. Rehearsal details are posted on the Web site.
The orchestra relies entirely on financial donations from the community to support member student scholarships, purchase of music, and administrative expenses.
