The Tar River Orchestra and Chorus is a vital organization to the community of Rocky Mount, and the State of North Carolina. This organization is dedicated to sustaining music performance and music appreciation as a necessary educational foundation.

Music education, both within the performance groups as well as our area schools, is an important part of our mission. The Tar River Orchestra performs annually for school children providing essential exposure to classic renditions and insight into the instrumental make up of the orchestra and the unique characteristics of each instrument.

All of this is possible because of a generous community composed of supportive corporations, institutions, and individuals who share this commitment to music as an essential element in enhancing the culture of our community.

Contributions at any level are welcomed and appreciated.
