Duke Symphony Orchestra returns to Beaufort in March

2 mins read

Hosted by the Foundation for Leadership Education, The Duke Symphony Orchestra will entertain Beaufort for the 17th year.

The Beaufort Academy Blue Notes, directed by Vic Varner, will perform, as well, playing two pieces accompanied by the orchestra for the third year in a row.

The concert will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 28 at USC Beaufort’s Center for the Arts.

Following the show, there will be an optional “Conductor’s Reception” at a private home in downtown Beaufort, wherein guests enjoy refreshments and meet the Duke students and their leader, conductor Harry Davidson. All proceeds from the event will help provide educational leadership scholarships through The Foundation for Leadership Education.

Beaufort is the only community that partners and hosts Duke for off campus performances. The Duke Symphony Orchestra has consistently recruited more than 80 to 100 members each year, comprised of musicians from the Duke student body (primarily undergraduates) and the surrounding university community.

Purchase tickets online at www.LowcountryLeaders.com. Guests can choose general admission ($40 advance, $50 at door) or premier admission ($80 advance, $90 at door), which includes the “Conductor’s Reception.” Note that last year’s performance sold out, and tickets are not guaranteed at the door.
