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.

Jonathan Levin to Perform at Cherry Hill

            The Cherry Hill Historical Foundation will hold its first full concert in more than a year on Sunday, May 9th. The Mothers’ Day event will begin at 3:00 PM and will feature pianist Jonathan Levin performing Beethoven’s Sonata Op. 27, No. 2 “Moonlight”; Moldobasonov’s “Mother’s Field” ballet; and Edvard Grieg’s Sonata in E Minor, op. 7.

            Jonathan Levin has established himself as a compelling pianist, composer, concert producer, and music entrepreneur. He is Artistic Director and Founder of the Clayton Piano Festival, now in its 10th season of concerts. He presented a special performance of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue at the Kremlin Palace in Moscow, and has made solo appearances in major venues across the United States, including Carnegie Hall and The Kennedy Center. He has been a laureate of many competitions and prizes including the National Stillman-Kelley Award, 2nd Prize at the 2012 Los Angeles International Liszt Competition, and recipient of the Alan Walker Award from the American Liszt Society.

            Mr. Levin has performed several times at Cherry Hill, and the directors are pleased to feature him as the guest artist for the  Emily Meymandi Concert, established by Dr. Assad Meymandi in honor of his late wife.

            Due to the continuing threat of Covid 19, safety precautions will be in effect for the concert and the reception to follow. Social distancing will be followed and those attending will be asked to wear masks. Several seating areas will be available, including the front and back porches, and outer doors will remain open.

            Admissions will be taken at the door, with adults at $10, students at $5, and all children 12 and under at no charge. For other information, please visit www.cherryhillconcerts.com or call 252-257-5259.
