Free NC Symphony Concert on the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks welcomes for the eighth year the North Carolina Symphony Summer Pops Concert at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo on June 19, 2009. Once again, this event is free to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.

Gates open at 6 p.m. with a pre-show program by the Concert Chorale of the Outer Banks at 7 p.m. The NC Symphony program begins at 8 p.m.

“This event continues to be one of the most talked about and well-attended community gatherings on the Outer Banks,” explains Aaron Tuell, Director of Public Relations for the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau. “The language of music has a way of striking common chords that resonate in all of us, and we are so very fortunate to be able to bring the NC Symphony once again to Dare County, for residents and visitors alike to share a magical evening. If you have never seen William Henry Curry at the helm, then prepare for a spellbinding experience.”

Resident Conductor William Henry Curry will lead the NC Symphony with selections of classical favorites from Strauss, Mendelssohn and Wagner, as well as exciting music from Hollywood including John Williams’ Star Wars and Superman, Danny Elfman’s The Simpsons theme and Henry Mancini’s lovely Moon River. Curry will begin his 14th season with the orchestra in 2009-10. A favorite of summer audiences across the state, Curry delights in sharing the best symphonic music with young and old alike.

Bring a picnic basket and portable chairs or blankets to enjoy a fantastic program under the stars. Admission is free, but the Manteo Rotary Club will be on hand to accept donations of non-perishable food items for local food pantires.
