HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 18, 2010 – The High Point University campus will be filled with harmonious tunes, thanks to an upcoming event featuring the North Carolina Symphony. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 11 in the Pauline Theatre of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. The event is open to the public; admission is free.
The North Carolina Symphony was organized in 1932 under the direction of Pulitzer traveling fellowship recipient and composer Lamar Stringfield. Under the 34-year leadership of Dr. and Mrs. Benjamin Swalin, the group developed its grassroots emphasis on taking the orchestra to the people of North Carolina ? including places such as HPU. That tradition has continued every year since the 1943 ?Horn Tootin? Bill? was passed by the State Legislature.
Now in its 77th year, the North Carolina Symphony is a full-time, professional orchestra with 68 members under the leadership of Grant Llewellyn.
Those interested in attending should contact High Point University to reserve tickets. Tickets may be picked up at will call an hour before the show. For more information, call 336-841-4587 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
