Music Matters 
Music Matters to Rocky Mount 

Orchestras Choruses, and Symphonies are shutting down all across America. These groups and the performances they give are critical to the cultural vibrancy of our communities. 

You know  names such as Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Ellington, Basie, John Williams, Aaron Copland and more because you had the opportunity in school and in your community to experience music from these milestone composers.  

Let's keep that alive - consider a donation to the Tar River Orchestra and Chorus 
We are able to continue solely based on community support.
