On June 5, 2011 at 7:30 the North Carolina Symphony will perform Around the World in Eighty Minutes.  Sponsored by Marine Federal Credit Union, Mine Safety Appliances and Onslow County Tourism.

“Music Director Grant Llewellyn takes you on a whirlwind journey across the globe with musical gems from the U.K., Austria, Italy, Russia, the Far East and, of course, our own United States.  Helping us along the way is one of our favorite collaborators, Rhiannon Giddens Laffan, lead singer of the 2011 Carolina Chocolate Drops.”

The County has been trying to attract some great events and performers, please show some support, I’d love to see this event have a tremendous turn out.  The park is beautiful and I’m sure it will be a fantastic night, care to join me?

*** Update, I was remiss in sharing additional GENEROUS sponsors: Platinum Corral, Modern Exterminating, Mr. & Mrs. Louis Sewell, Dr. & Mrs. Timothy Edwards, and Marine Chevrolet.  Thank you folks for all you do!

  1. What a great way to help get the word out re the NC Symphony concert at Riverwalk Crossing Park in Downtown Jacksonville. I hope everyone who sees this will continue to spread the word. It will be a wonderful experience for Onslow Co. If you can edit,please add
    Onslow Memorial Hospital as one of the main sponsors.
    Other supporters who are paying for the concert are: Platinum Corral, Modern Exterminating, Mr. & Mrs. Louis Sewell, Dr. & Mrs. Timothy Edwards, and Marine Chevrolet. If it weren’t for dedicated businesses and individuals like these, these events would not be possible. Thanks for you help.

  2. I sure will, thank you for giving me some extra scoop! Folks, please pass along this link, repost to Twitter and FB (I just adjusted the sharing tools) and even StumbleUpon. Hoping for bigger and better turns outs for these events! And if anyone knows of other events they’d like for me to share here, simple shoot me an email to , please and thank you!
