Anniversary Party - NC Symphony Presents a Free "Pops in the City" Concert


Sound Garden:  You've all heard the saying ... "Couples that play together stay together".  That must Pops in the City   also be true for symphonies as this year the North Carolina Symphony is celebrating its 80th anniversary with a free outdoor concert in the Raleigh Amphitheater on Sunday, September 9 at 7:30pm.  That's right ... FREE.  Here's your chance to impress your date with your discerning taste (beyond heavy metal) and soak in the downtown atmosphere.  Pops in the City is presented in partnership with the City of Raleigh and is part of the City of Raleigh's Downtown Family Get Down series presented by PNC Bank.


The Bold and the Beautiful:  The NC Symphony, led by Music Director, Grant Llewellyn, will perform selections (see below) for every musical taste and highlight a wonderful legacy of service to the people and schools of The Old North State.  Highlights include:


Bernstein: Overture to Candide
Grainger: Spoon River
Mizekso: Building the Community from Sketches from Pinehurst
Strauss, Jr: Accelerations Waltz Pops in the City
Bates: "The Old North State"
Joplin: The Entertainer
Dvorák: Molto Vivace and Largo from Symphony No. 9, "From the New World"
Copland: An Outdoor Overture
...and more!


Sound Too Good to Be True?  Set your calendars for September 9 and come see (and hear) for yourself.  Congratulations to the NC Symphony on reaching this significant milestone  ... Is 80 the new 50?  ... And thank you from NC Tarheels for enriching our lives.  Keep up the good Sound Bites!

Nesting Instincts - Art in the Gardens at Duke Raleigh Hospital Gardens


If you think Art in the Gardens is for the birds, think again.  The Duke Raleigh Hospital Guild is pecking away by hosting its 3rdAnnual Art in the Gardens Show to raise funds and awareness for Birdwood.


Art in the Gardens The Art Exhibit is on Friday, September 7 and Saturday, September 8 at the Duke Raleigh Hospital Gardens, located at 3400 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.  The two-day juried event will feature more than 25 local and southern artists who will exhibit and sell glass, ceramics, wood, jewelry and paintings.  The Art Show, Sale and Raffle are free and open to the public on Friday from 11am to 4pm and Saturday from 10am to 5pm.


Art in the Gardens will support efforts to renovate Birdwood, a treasured colonial revival home and garden on five acres of land adjacent to the hospital.  Birdwood is being renovated to serve as the first hospital hospitality house in Raleigh for loved ones of patients who come seeking Duke Raleigh Hospital's world-class medical care and need a comfortable, affordable, and nurturing place to stay.  The Duke Raleigh Hospital Guild has committed to raise the necessary funds to renovate, furnish, and operate the historic house and Birdwood to restore the grounds.


So don't be a bird-brain, bring your flock and help support Birdwood while enjoying great art and the lovely gardens at Duke Raleigh Hospital.


The Artists Reception will be held Friday evening Sept 7th at 6pm until 8pm.  Tickets are $50 per person by August 31st.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
