North Carolina Symphony holds Cherokee Music Day

A Cherokee Music Day is coming to Cherokee Central School on Wednesday, March 16, with a full slate of free concerts and hands-on interactive instruction between North Carolina Symphony members and students.

The day begins with two small ensemble concerts, a band master class and classroom visit with North Carolina Symphony Associate Conductor Sarah Hicks. The full symphony will perform a free education concert for elementary and middle school-age students, after which students can meet symphony musicians and try out some of the orchestra’s instruments for themselves.

The education concert asks students and teachers “What Makes Music Music?” with a rich and engaging musical lineup. The events are closed to the public.
