Edgecombe Community College will present an evening of holiday music with the North Carolina Symphony at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 5 in the Keihin Auditorium on the college’s Tarboro campus.

The concert is the second event in Season 14 of the Edgecombe Performance Series, which brings world-class entertainment to Tarboro and Edgecombe County. Each year, ECC presents a series of performances for the community in a variety of artistic disciplines. 

The North Carolina Symphony Holiday Pops Concert is an annual tradition in Tarboro. Led by Associate Conductor Wesley Schulz, the concert will feature familiar seasonal and classical favorites, including selections from Irving Berlin, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Leroy Anderson, among others.

Familiar melodies like “The Christmas Song,” “White Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” performed by a full symphony orchestra are sure to lift everyone’s holiday spirits.

The program also features two arrangements by Chicago-based composer James M. Stephenson, including his “Holiday Overture” and “A Holly Jolly Singalong.”

General admission tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for students. 

Tickets for all Edgecombe Performance Series events are available through the ECC Box Office on the Tarboro campus. Tickets for the Dec. 5 Holiday Pops and Feb. 1 Barter Players events are also available online at www.etix.com. Season tickets and ballet tickets are available through the ECC Box Office only.
