HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 20, 2013 – High Point University will ring in the holiday season with a community favorite, “Holiday Pops,” an annual performance by the North Carolina Symphony. The event will be held on Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the Pauline Theatre of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. The event is open to the public.
“Our community is extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to experience this group of talented musicians on our campus each year,” says Dr. Don Scarborough, vice president of Community Relations. “The ‘Holiday Pops’ concert is a fitting way to celebrate the season.”
Founded in 1932, and subsequently the first state-supported symphony in the country, the North Carolina Symphony was organized under the direction of Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship recipient and composer Lamar Stringfield. The orchestra is under the artistic leadership of Music Director Grant Llewellyn, who began his tenure in 2004.
Now celebrating its 81st anniversary, the full-time, professional ensemble with 65 members hosts 175 annual performances throughout the state in a variety of venues.
Parking will be available for the community members behind the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. Shuttles will be provided.
Complimentary tickets are limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis by contacting 336-841-9209 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
