Exchanging Cultures Via Music
The Arts Council of Moore County presents the China National Orchestra and the Raleigh Symphony in concert Friday, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m. at R.E. Lee Auditorium at Pinecrest High School.
This event is a rare exchange of culture and a celebration of the bond between Moore County and Guidong County in China's Hunan Province. Playing on a unique combination of Western and Eastern instruments, both orchestras will perform together for this community concert.
The concert is free and open to the public, but tickets are required to attend.
To receive free tickets, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the ACMC/China Orchestra Tickets, P.O. Box 405, Southern Pines, NC 28388, or pick up tickets at the Arts Council offices (Campbell House, 482 E. Connecticut Ave., Southern Pines).
"Please use all the tickets you request," says Chris Dunn, executive director of the ACMC.
The China National Orchestra is the world's best orchestra in traditional Chinese music, and they have performed on the world's most prestigious stages.
Since 1979, the Raleigh Symphony Orchestra has brought musicians and the community together in the belief that music has the power to affect the lives of all people.
The concert is made possible with help from the Town of Aberdeen, Arts Council of Moore County, Harris Blake, Moore County Chamber of Commerce, Moore County Schools, Village of Pinehurst, Town of Southern Pines, Art Swanson and Thermal Metal Treating Inc.
