Celebrating 10 Years of the North Carolina Symphony
The New Bern String Fling Gala & Auction will be held Saturday, September 26, 2015, 6:30 p.m., at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center in downtown New Bern in celebration of the North Carolina Symphony’s annual New Bern Concert Series that began in New Bern ten years ago.
The New Bern String Fling Gala & Auction, celebrating 10 years of the North Carolina Symphony’s Annual New Bern Concert Series, promises to be New Bern’s most memorable, outstanding Black Tie ticketed celebration of the year. The evening includes an open bar with unlimited drinks, an elegant dinner, a Live and Silent Auction of beautifully painted one-of-a-kind violins and violin-themed sculpture, pottery and woodwork by well known local and regional artists, dancing to the music of I Love This Band, and a Stock Your Wine Cellar raffle of a premier wine collection.
Tickets can be purchased individually, or for a table of ten, for $125 per person from the NewBernStringFling.com website.
In 2005, the NC Symphony collaborated with New Bern to develop an annual concert series featuring three Classical concerts, a free summer Pops concert on the lawn at Tryon Palace, a Holiday Pops in December and a concert for children and families.
Sponsored by the New Bern Board of the North Carolina Symphony (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit), proceeds from the New Bern String Fling Gala & Auction will be used to support the annual North Carolina Symphony performances, children education programs and music education.
