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. All of the concerts presented by the MPO are free and reflect a wide variety of music styles that strive to challenge the skills of the members.
The Arts Council of Moore County is proud to sponsor the Moore Philharmonic Orchestra.
