HPU to Host NC Symphony Holiday Concert
HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 19, 2012 – High Point University will usher in the holiday season by hosting a special performance by the North Carolina Symphony. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 4 in the Pauline Theatre of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. The event is open to the public.
Organized in 1932 under the direction of Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship recipient and composer Lamar Stringfield, the Orchestra has been led by Dr. and Mrs. Benjamin Swalin for 35 years.
The orchestra, which is currently celebrating its 80th anniversary, is a full-time, professional orchestra with 68 members under the artistic leadership of music director Grant Llewellyn.
“Members of the community always enjoy seeing this group of talented musicians perform here on our campus each year,” says Dr. Don Scarborough, vice president of Community Relations. “This holiday concert is not only a wonderful cultural opportunity, but it’s a fitting way to get into the spirit of the season with beautiful music.”
Parking will be available for community members behind the Hayworth Fine Arts Center.
