After being unable to perform concerts last summer due to the pandemic, the North Carolina Symphony returns this month to the Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, North Carolina for four Saturday UNC Health Summerfest classical and pops concerts. The June 5 program featured Joseph Peters, the orchestra’s associate principal oboe and English horn, conducting the orchestra in music from The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Psycho, and other film scores. Concerts on June 12, 19, and 26 will feature Cirque de la Symphonie and the orchestra, conducted by Wesley Schulz; Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4 and Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 3, conducted by Joseph Young and featuring Principal Horn Rebekah Daley; and music by Mozart, Mendelssohn, and other composers, led by David Glover, the orchestra’s former associate conductor. Socially distanced seating options will include reserved pod seating on the lawn, table seating in front of the stage, table seating at the back of the venue, and general admission seating elsewhere. There will be contactless ticket scanning, hand sanitizer will be available, and face-covering policies will comply with current executive orders for the state of North Carolina.
