Can’t beat a front porch and a symphony performance!


The North Carolina Symphony performance last night was wonderful.  Gathered with a group of friends, we camped out on a front porch, enjoyed the tunes and catching up.  Gardenia scented air, rocking chairs, moss draped trees, a glass of wine and world class performers. . .a tough night to beat!

The next concert in the area will be the Holiday Pops performance.  Sunday, November 27 at three pm at Northside High School’s auditorium.  Visit http://www.ncsymphony.org for more info, other exciting events as well as ticketing.

Free Concert by the North Carolina Symphony~Around the World in eighty minutes


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!
