Toe River Chamber Ensemble
Toe River Chamber Ensemble is a community orchestra sponsored by the Toe River Arts Council. It is based in Yancey and Mitchell Counties of North Carolina.
As the availability of vaccines for Covid 19 in 2021 increased, the Toe River Chamber Ensemble resumed string rehearsals in May with those members who were fully vaccinated. In June, all wind players who were fully vaccinated returned for rehearsals. It was decided to revive the second and third movements of Mozart’s 21st piano concerto with Isaac Boulter on piano, and schedule a live-streamed concert. The concert was streamed on the Toe River Arts Facebook page on August 24.
The ensemble is currently taking a break from rehearsals due to the high infection rate of Covid 19 in our area. However, they hope to partner with Appalachian Therapeutic Riding Center and offer some outdoor concerts in the fall of 2021.
If you play the violin, viola, cello, or string bass, are fully vaccinated, and would like to join us in making music, please contact Toe River Arts for information.
The Toe River Chamber Ensemble is made possible in part by a Grassroots Arts Grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Cultural and Natural Resources Department, a state agency and by those individuals and organizations who believe in the benefits of music.
