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. A Handicap lift is provided in the back of the house for those who need to use it.

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

TENOR AND PIANIST TO PERFORM AT CHERRY HILL

Posted on: August 23rd, 2021

The Cherry Hill Board of Directors will present tenor Tyrone Chambers and pianist Jonathan Levin in a program of American music on Sunday, August 29th. The performance will begin at 3:00 PM and admissions will be taken at the door. Adult admission is $10, students at $5, and children 12 and younger admitted at no charge.

            Tyrone Chambers, a New Orleans native, began singing as a youngster with his church choir. He attended Morehouse College where he earned a degree in music and developed a passion for opera. While at Morehouse he received a thorough background in European classical music and later received a Masters in Music from the University of Oklahoma. He returned to New Orleans and performed in many local productions before moving to New York City for greater access to auditions. He has performed in numerous locations throughout Europe and the United States. His musical repertoire is extensive, being equally at home with jazz, musical theater, opera, and oratorio. 

            Jonathan Levin has established himself as a compelling pianist, composer, concert producer, and music entrepreneur. He is the Artistic Director and Founder of the Clayton Piano Festival, now in its 10th season. Performing across the United States and Europe, Mr. Levin has been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards and has performed several times at Cherry Hill.

            The two musicians collaborated to create the show “American Portraits” which they performed at Levin’s Clayton Piano Festival.  Much of that program will be performed at Cherry Hill and will include spirituals, show tunes, folk songs, and original works with an overarching theme of peace and unity.

            Due to the continuing presence of Covid 19, safety protocols will be followed. Any unvaccinated persons will be asked to wear masks, and all others will be encouraged to do the same. Seating in the 1858 plantation house will be in numerous locations for safe distancing.
