The North Carolina Symphony Orchestra was on the Outer Banks this past Monday and  Tuesday, March 4 and 5. Not all 66 musicians that the NC Symphony Orchestra website  lists as full-time musicians were here, but rather a string quartet and woodwind  quintet. The two quintets got together at one point to give a performance at Cape  Hatteras Secondary School on Monday evening. 

The music was everything to be expected from musicians of that caliber. It was a  stellar, wonderful performance. But that was only part of the story. 

Sponsored by the Bryan Cultural Series, the musicians of the symphony managed to  bring music and their love of music to students from Corolla to Ocracoke.

“We’ve never tried anything as ambitious as this program. Particularly going to  Ocracoke and Corolla, where the Symphony had not been up to this point,” said Bob  Muller, President of the Bryan Cultural Series. 

Muller made a point of thanking the Outer Banks Community Foundation for their  support, which included a $15,000 grant. “The Community Foundation’s participation  was crucial, frankly,” he said. “We’re going to end up spending around $25,000 by the  time it’s all done with meals and orchestra fees.”
