Cherry Hill Concerts

Cherry Hill Plantation

Cherry Hill, built in 1858, is the home of the Cherry Hill Historical Foundation and the venue for several classical music concerts each year. Concerts are open to the public for a nominal donation of $10.00 per adult, $5.00 per student, and children 12 and under are free. Concerts are held on Sunday afternoons in the spring and fall. Pianists, violinists, vocalists, and artists with other musical talents perform in the old world tradition of using private homes rather than concert halls. A magnificent concert grand graces the spacious entry hall and is the focal point for each performance. Refreshments are served following the event, and the artists visit with their audience in the dining room and parlors of the plantation house.

This historic property is located in the Inez community of Warren County, North Carolina, approximately 1 hour north of Raleigh.

ANDREW WILLIS AND FRIENDS AT CHERRY HILL

Posted on: May 13th, 2018


Andrew Willis, professor of music at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, will return to Cherry Hill on Sunday, May 20, 2018. Dr. Willis has performed on the Steinway grand piano at the antebellum plantation concert site a number of times. Initially coming to Cherry Hill to preview his renowned “Focus On Piano” series, Dr. Willis in recent years has brought his finest graduate students to perform with him.

This year all five of the students are in the UNC-G Doctoral Program and were selected by Dr. Willis for their outstanding keyboard talent as well as their potential for professional success in the coming years.

The students are from several countries including the United States, and all have won awards from Universities and competitions around the world. They will perform compositions by Chopin, Debussey, and three 20thcentury composers. Dr. Willis, assisted by one of the students, will play Robert Schumann’s “Introduction and Allegro appassionato, Op. 92.

The performance will begin at 3:00 PM, and admission will be taken at the door. The cost for adults will be $10, students $5, and children 12 and under will be admitted at no charge. A reception will follow the concert, and the entire 1858 house will be open for viewing.
