Celebrating Local Live Music!

The 2017-2018 season marks the 32nd year of Tar River Orchestra and Chorus musical performances in Rocky Mount, NC and the surrounding region. Founded in 1986, the Tar River Orchestra and Chorus is dedicated to sustaining live local music by providing opportunities for professional and highly skilled local musicians to perform together and provide a forum for young people to learn how to exercise their singing and learn to play string instruments.

Five musical groups provide unique performances for adults and children. Musicianship is on par with that found in much larger cities. Audiences are presented a wide range of musical repertoire.
