Orchestra Has Two Performances This Month

WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Symphony Orchestra will perform a pair of Halloween-themed concerts in Farmville and Tarboro later this month.

The Farmville concert is scheduled for Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the Farmville Community Arts Council’s Paramount Theatre on Main Street. The Tarboro performance is set for Oct. 29 at 3 p.m. in Edgecombe Community College’s Keihin Auditorium on Wilson Street.

According to PCC Music and Drama Coordinator R. Michael Stephenson, the orchestra will perform music by Russian composer Alexander Borodin (“Polovtsian Dances”) and Norwegian Edward Grieg (“Peer Gynt Suite No. 1”). He says the programs will also feature several works specifically written for winds and the PCC Flute Choir and will conclude with the entire orchestra performing a stirring rendition of “The Pirates of the Caribbean.”

Both performances are free and family-friendly. Donations will be accepted, however, to support future orchestra activities.

Stephenson noted that both concerts will feature a Halloween costume contest for children 12 years old and younger. The winners will have an opportunity to direct the orchestra.
