A few years ago, due to statewide budget cuts in Education, Moore County Schools lost their elementary school Junior Orchestra Program. The Carolina Philharmonic, together with violinist/educator Karen Lewis, decided to relaunch the program in 2011 with private funding from Philharmonic patrons. Serving around 100 children annually, with beginner, intermediate and advanced classes, they continue to provide orchestra experience for ages 8 and up.
