The Moore Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) began in 2005 when a small group of musicians began rehearsals at Southern Middle School and gave a winter performance at Pinecrest High School. This small group has continued to grow and includes a rotating roster of 50-65 members of students and adults. The MPO has now created a relationship with Sandhills Community College in Pinehurst and is able to offer college credit to students 16 or older. The MPO has also created relationships with Festival of the Trees and Pinehurst Resort, as well as other community groups.

Membership in the Moore Philharmonic is open to talented students as well as community members . There is no fee to join and there is no formal audition process. Seating in the group is determined by members of the Board. Anyone interested in joining should email us through the contact page.

Music: Mélange *NEW DATE* @ Sunrise Theater
Feb 4 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Due to Hurricane Florence, this concert has been rescheduled from September 17, 2018 to February 4, 2019. To all ticket holders, your Sep. 17 tickets may be used to attend the Feb. 4 concert.

Ensemble Mélange, formerly known as SHUFFLE Concert, is a joyful sextet of all-star virtuosos. Ensemble Mélange shakes up the concert experience, forges a personal connection with the audience, and mixes tried-and-true repertoire with a smorgasbord of jewels from distant genres. The concert is reformatted as a musician’s party game; after each piece, members of the audience are chosen to pick the next piece from an extensive menu organized by style, nationality, and time period. Whether you’re a purist or a populist, a snob or a noob, eight years old or eighty years old, you’ll leave charmed and punch-drunk on a piece you didn’t know you were going to love.

The full season is Omer Quartet on 10/15/18; Mélange on 2/4/19; Lucas Meachem, baritone on 3/4/19; violinist Benjamin Beilman & pianist Andrew Tyson on 4/8/19.
