EAST SPENCER — Starting Sept. 26, residents of East Spencer will have the opportunity to make a little music.

The Salisbury Symphony has partnered with town officials to launch a 12-week “learn to play violin” pilot program that is free and open to town residents.

The move is part of new symphony Executive Director James Harvey’s desire to turn Rowan County into “a beacon for the arts.”

Harvey said it’s his dream that the symphony become a countywide organization and for Rowan County to be a place where everyone appreciates the arts.

“So everybody being touched by music, everybody being influenced in some way by the Salisbury Symphony,” he said.
