Eastern Music Festival 2006 

The Eastern Music Festival is the largest event of its kind in central North Carolina. Education's the name of the game, and the participants are the cream of the crop. Listeners learn, too--from the concerts, the student recitals and the open rehearsals. Each week, the Independent, in partnership with Classical Voice of North Carolina, will feature highlights from the previous week of the festival and the coming week's most anticipated events. Here's this week's schedule. For more, see www.easternmusicfestival.org or call (877) 833-6753.
