One of the more recent additions to the Pinehurst cultural scene is the Pinehurst Performing Arts Center and the Carolina Philharmonic.
I had not until recently heard or seen the Pinehurst Performing Arts Center. It was first brought to my attention from a brochure for the Pinehurst Summer Pop series presented by the Arts Center and the Carolina Philharmonic. This piqued my curiosity. Within a few days the founder of these two projects was giving a speech about this endeavor at the Realtor Association’s monthly luncheon. And not long after that there was an article in the paper about presenting the idea of the Arts Center to the Village of Pinehurst’s town council. The council appeared to very open to the idea though no formal plans were presented or considered.
Currently there isn’t as single location for the center or the philharmonic which explains why I hadn’t seen it. But there is the vision for a 2,200 state of the art performance and cultural center to host the Carolina Philharmonic among other shows, artists, opera and ballet. All of this is the work of David Michael Wolf and he has already shown progress by putting together the summer pop series as well as gathering a host of volunteers who would also like to see his vision for the arts brought here to Pinehurst. If you have any interest in contributing to the Carolina Philharmonic or the Pinehurst Performing Arts Center you can call 910.687.474. You can also call to get more information or to volunteer your time.
The work of this organization is already bringing cultural events to the Pinehurst area and it will be an added benefit to the entire community to have the 2,200 seat location to host the Philharmonic and other performances. Here are a couple of performances scheduled in the area this fall:
Sunday October 9th at 7PM at the Robert E. Lee Auditorium at Pinecrest High School. The Four Freshman will perform a mix of harmonies with a bit of elegance and a bit of swing. $50 Premium seating and $25 general admission.
Tuesday November 8th at 7PM at Owen’s Auditorium at Sandhills Community College. Beethoven’s Ghost Chamber Music performed by David Michael Wolff and Friends. (Call the box office for ticket information 910-687-4746)
Enjoy the performing arts through the Pinehurst Performing Arts Center and the Carolina Philharmonic.
