The 2013-14 season will feature three concerts this year held on the William Peace University campus in conjunction with the North Carolina Symphony. All are made possible through a gift made by alumna Sara Jo Allen Manning ’58 ’60 which established The Manning Chamber Music Series Fund.
“One of the true cultural highlights every year for William Peace University is the participation of members of the North Carolina Symphony in performance as part of the Manning Chamber Music Concert Series,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “This season opener will provide a great opportunity for those who attend to meet and enjoy casual conversation prior to listening to expertly crafted music that is beautifully performed.”
