North Carolina Symphony To Perform at MHC in April
Mars Hill College will reopen ticket sales March 10 for the spring concert of the North Carolina Symphony on the campus. The concert will take place on April 25 at 7:30 pm in Moore Auditorium. It will be the first time in more than 30 years that the North Carolina Symphony, founded in 1932 by Mars Hill College alumnus Lamar Stringfield, has performed at the college.
N.C. Symphony Music Director Grant Llewellyn, often praised for his “graceful and expressive direction,” will lead the Mars Hill event. Among the pieces to be included in the concert will be Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 and Concert Aria “Ah, perfido!” Other pieces planned for the concert include: Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, Wagner’s Prelude to Act I from Lohengrin, Mozart’s “Martern aller arten” from The Abduction from the Seraglio, and Wagner’s Prelude to Act III from Lohengrin.
General admission tickets to the concert are $25. Patron tickets are $100, and include special seating, as well as a post-concert reception with the maestro and musicians.
