There is some great music coming up on the Outer Banks over the next few weeks as the Don and Catharine Bryan Cultural Series and the Outer Banks Forum wrap up their seasons. 

Because they are volunteer organizations members of the organizations find it difficult to put the time in during the summer to create a professional performance, so April and May is when they put the final show on for their seasons. 

But what a show they are putting on. 

The Bryan Series actually has two shows over the next few weeks.

First up is David Holt with Josh Goforth. Holt is a Grammy award winning bluegrass and traditional country performer with a great voice amazing technique on guitar and dobro. 

Goforth is a relative newcomer to the bluegrass/country music scene, but his guitar and fiddle playing has garnered well deserved praise. Great blending of voices in performance.

The New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players were on the Outer Banks two years ago performing the Pirates of Penzance. They were outstanding. Their performance of HMS Pinafore may be even better. 

Like the Pirates of Penzance, HMS Pinafore lampoons the British navy and traditions. Although first performed in 1878, the play remains remarkably contemporary.

The Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts has made a tradition of ending their season with a visit from the Virginia Symphony. One of the finest regional orchestras in the nation, this should be a spectacular afternoon of music.
