Event to celebrate music, local foods

The Newark-Granville Symphony Orchestra will celebrate the second annual "Symphony of Flavor" fundraiser at Moundbuilders Country Club, at 5:30 p.m. on June 8.

Symphony of Flavor will honor the first full season under Concertmaster Andy Carlson with a gourmet four-course dinner of local foods. Each course will be accompanied by a different genre of music.

Last year's event raised nearly $25,000 to benefit the symphony's educational and artistic program, the Newark-Granville Youth Symphony and the Chamber Strings.

The goal this year is $30,000, and major new programs of both educational and artistic natures will be revealed at this event.

Tickets go on sale May 1. Individual tickets are $125; two are $200 and tables of eight are $750.

For more information or to purchase tickets, call 740-975-4633 by June 1.
