On Saturday, September 12, the musicians of the North Carolina Symphony are donating their services to perform a free outdoor concert in downtown Raleigh’s Moore Square as their gift to the community that supports them. William Henry Curry will conduct the concert (which begins at 7:30pm) and the Red Clay Ramblers will join the Symphony for some additional fun (the Ramblers are also donating their services that evening).
The City of Raleigh is graciously providing the infrastructure for the concert, and invites the entire community to come downtown, bring a picnic dinner, or eat at any of the local restaurants nearby. Prior to the Symphony concert, the Triangle Brass Band will perform at 6pm, so come on down early and enjoy the entire evening.
