Philharmonic Sets Winter Concert, Silent Auction
Celebrate the holiday season by enjoying an afternoon of free holiday music while helping raise money for the Moore Philharmonic Orchestra.
The orchestra will hold its annual winter concert and silent auction at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst Resort Sunday, Dec. 20, at 3 p.m. Proceeds from the silent auction will support a scholarship fund benefiting Moore County music students and will help cover operating and general expenses for the orchestra.
"No tickets are required, but tax-deductible donations are always welcome," says a spokesman.
Since 2005, the orchestra has served the Sandhills community supporting music appreciation and education.
It provides an outlet for approximately 50 volunteer musicians to perform varied programs of orchestral literature.
Members include adults and talented college, high school and middle school students. It is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization and relies entirely on individual and business contributions to cover operating and general expenses and to support a scholarship fund benefiting Moore County music students.
The orchestra is a member of the Arts Council of Moore County and the Moore County Chamber of Commerce.
The hotel is located at 80 Carolina Vista Drive, Pinehurst.
