The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra
August 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Craven Community College’s Lifetime Learning Center welcomes The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, conducted by Frances Blaker, for an open community concert on Friday, August 3 at 7:30 p.m.
North Carolina Baroque Orchestra is thrilled to perform again this summer Eastern North Carolina! NCBO will present a program called “Fiori del barocco: Flowers of the Baroque” as a finale to the ensemble’s second annual orchestral retreat. Composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Evaristo Felice Dall’Abaco, Antonio Vivaldi, and more will be featured in a concert of gorgeous baroque gems, played on period instruments.
NCBO is excited to be able to meet again at Camp Caroline in Arapahoe, NC (as it did in the summer of 2017) for an in-house workshop to grow the orchestra’s musical bonds and artistry. Retreats like this offer a unique opportunity for NCBO musicians to recharge and become creatively inspired while far away from the pressures of daily life. Having a concert to highlight the orchestra’s endeavors during its retreat week is a way to not only celebrate the orchestra’s accomplishments, but to share this passionate music with the Eastern North Carolina community.
This concert is open to the community. Come as you are and pay what you can. The suggested donation is $10.
