Interactive: North Carolina Symphony Blog
Happy New Year from the North Carolina Symphony! Our continuing resolution is to bring music to audiences young and old across North Carolina. (Insert noisemaker sound effect here!).
We had a wonderful New Year’s Eve program called “Vienna With A Twist.” In addition to the beloved music of the Strauss family that carries on a wonderful traditional New Year’s Eve celebration, the concert featured conductor Jeff Tyzik and drummer Dave Mancini, performing the music of the Big Band era with the North Carolina Symphony. They rocked the house. Wow, talk about a big band!
One of the joys of a new year is to take stock of the year just past. We took a look at the comments on our Facebook page from 2012, and it did our hearts good to see the kind of impact that we had on communities all around North Carolina. Below are just a few.
“Field trip time! Headed to White Oak High to see the North Carolina Symphony with Northwoods Elementary School, and all the other 4th graders of Onslow County North Carolina. So excited, can't wait!”
“I love our fabulous NC Symphony! In addition to classical music, they showcase a wide variety of popular music at the very highest level. If you have never gone to the symphony, I encourage you to check it out… You will LOVE IT!”
