Play With the Band II

Friday, Apr 08, 2016, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

We’re doing it again! Last year we invited young wind/percussion instrumental students with just a few years playing experience to sit in with the band for a series of rehearsals and a formal concert in the Cary Arts Center Theater – a “Play with the Adult Non-Pros” experience. A handful of students took the challenge with great success, so we’re extending the invitation again. As last year, we especially want to include those who take private lessons, are home schooled, or attend a school without a formal band. The music includes selections starting off with easier pieces and getting progressively more challenging. Local school music directors and private teachers can “nominate” students they feel are advanced enough to enjoy and grow from this experience. We will also entertain requests from parents with children they feel are ready for such a challenge. Who knows – perhaps some may be invited to participate with the band in future concerts. Come enjoy the talents of young musicians as they Play with the Band II.

Surprise, Surprise!

Location to be determined
Cary, NC

Do you like surprises? Well, here’s a concert that’s just chocked full of surprises. First, where’s this concert going to be held? Every year for the past 20 years or so, our May concert has always been outdoors at the Sertoma Amphitheatre in Bond Park. But this year? It’s a surprise! We’re moving to the cool inside of the Cary Arts Center. What music will be featured? It’s a surprise! But, you can bet on at least one piece by Haydn. There’ll be an NC premier, too. Also, this will be the last “Silly Prize” concert this season. What “Silly Prizes” will be awarded? You guessed it – it’s a surprise. So join with the band as we do our best to surprise you with Surprise, Surprise!
