Pirates Go Symphonic!
Pirate fever is here and you can catch it at the North Carolina Symphony’s Pirates! Summerfest concert July 9 at 7:30 p.m. at the Koka Booth Amphitheater in Cary. The concert features songs from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean, The Flying Dutchman, The Pirates of Penzance, North Carolina singer/songwriter Laurelyn Dossett’s musical Bloody Blackbeard and much more.
Immerse yourself in creative musical adventure and come dressed as an ocean-going pirate. Gates open at 5 p.m. and the music starts at 7:30 p.m. Your kids can try out the orchestra’s instruments at the Petting Zoo from 5-7:30 p.m. in the Koka Booth Amphitheatre’s cobblestone courtyard. Families will also enjoy a fireworks display after the concert.
Don’t forget a picnic basket packed with your favorite treats so you can participate in the Picnic of the Week contest. Wine and beer are also allowed. Concessions and catering are available on site as well.
