The Stanly County Concert Band will present its Fall Concert on Thursday, Nov. 9, 7:30 p.m. at the Stanly County Agri-Civic Center. Offered to the public free of charge, this concert will feature a variety of musical styles from traditional to modern classics.
The Stanly County Concert Band is made up of Pfeiffer faculty and students, individuals from the community and local music teachers. Anyone with a love of music who plays a band instrument is welcome to be a part of this very talented ensemble. Pfeiffer University supports the ensemble by providing rehearsal space, the use of larger band instruments, and an extensive music library. Rehearsals are Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., in the Pfeiffer University Band Room. The Stanly County Concert Band serves as the performance vehicle for Pfeiffer University Band students enhancing musical experiences for both organizations.
The band will also participate in Christmas Concerts at Pfeiffer University that will be held in Henry Pfeiffer Chapel on November 30, at 7:30 p.m., and December 3 at 3 p.m. These concerts will feature the Pfeiffer University Concert Choir, Gospel Choir, Handbell Choir, and the Concert Band.
The Stanly County Concert Band is directed by Carmella Hedrick, Pfeiffer University Band Director, Tim Hedrick, retired Albemarle High School Band Director, and Frank Poolos, North Stanly High School Band Director.
The mission of the Stanly County Concert Band is to provide lifelong participation in music and to enhance the cultural life of Stanly County and the region through free or low-cost performances.
This project is supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, the Stanly County Arts Council, and Uwharrie Bank.
