Fayetteville Symphony Comes to SCC
The Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra will present a concert of classical music Sunday, Feb. 7, at 3 p.m. in Owens Auditorium at Sandhills Community College.
Admission is free and complimentary tickets will be available at the door the day of the concert.
"Be sure to arrive early for best seating," says a spokesman.
This afternoon of classical music, which is presented in conjunction with the Sandhills Community College Foundation, will include "Symphony No. 1 The Afro-American Symphony" by William Grant Still, "Symphony No. 25 in G Minor, K. 183" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and "The Firebird Suite" (1919) by Igor Stravinsky.
Founded in 1956, the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously-funded orchestra in North Carolina.
Today, under the baton of Maestro Fouad Fakhouri, the orchestra is also recognized as one of the finest regional orchestras in the state.
"This will be the third time we have had the Fayetteville Symphony at Sandhills Community College," says Dr. John Dempsey, president of the college. "Each concert has been wonderful, and we are very excited to have the symphony back on Sunday afternoon. I can assure you that you and your family or friends will have a great time at this concert."
Fakhouri has held the position of music director and conductor of the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra of North Carolina since 2004.
