Symphony Memberships Available Now
V Yesterday the county drive for memberships in the North
Carolina Symphony Society officially opened.
Wo have the opportunity to experience so few cultural events
such as concerts, art exhibits, or literary discussions that we
should make every effort to promote the appearance of the Little
Symphony here next spring..
Purchase of a membership in the symphony society does not
entitle one to hoar only the concert presented in Morehead City,
but will admit the holder of the membership card to any concert
given in the state.
Tickets can be bought from Mrs. C. R. Whcatly, Sr., in Bead
fort, or from Mrs. B. F. Royal, Morehead City.
Little Symphony concerts arc indeed worth hearing, as past
experience has proved. x
