MPO resumes rehearsals

Posted by on Aug 18, 2016 in Front Page

The Moore Philharmonic Orchestra will resume rehearsals at Sandhills Community College on Thursdays from 6:30-8:15.  The first rehearsal will be on August 18, 2016 for string players only.  The full orchestra will meet on September 1. This will include all members, including brass, woodwinds, and percussion. We are actively seeking new members. There are openings in every section due to the high number of graduates last year. More information about can be found on the website at www.mporchestra.com.

The orchestra is comprised of both students and adults who are looking to enhance their musical experiences and share their talents with the Moore County Community.  Since starting in 2005, the MPO has made great achievements.  The MPO has awarded over $30,000 in scholarships to talented students in the county.  The MPO has worked in tandem with the Trinity Music Academy in Troy and has featured pianists Sophia Pavlenko and Paul Chandley at seasonal concerts.  Several years ago, the orchestra dedicated a concert and performed music of living composers.  In the spring of 2016, Judith Saxton of the UNC School of the Arts was featured as a soloist performing Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto and also held a master brass workshop.

The MPO’s annual Showcase Concert will be in October in the Owens Auditorium at Sandhills CC. This will feature each section of the orchestra. The annual Holiday Concert will be on December 17 at Pinecrest High School.  Additional concert details will be posted as the season starts.  All concerts are free. Donations are tax deductible.
