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.

The Cherry Hill Concert Series will hold its annual Outstanding Young Artist concert on SATURDAY, June 8th. Dr. Daniel Steinert will accompany mezzo-soprano Joanna Burke for the 3:00 PM event. Ms. Burke will sing works by Mahler, Ravel, and Rossini.

            Joanna Burke is a resident of Durham, where she studies under Dr. Brian Gill. She holds degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill and the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. She has performed in numerous opera and operetta roles in the United States, Canada, and Italy.

            Dr. Daniel Steinert is Director of Music Ministries at Christ United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill.  A longtime supporter of Cherry Hill and a frequent guest artist, Dr. Steinert was the founder and director of the Northeast Piedmont Chorale. He has spent many years conducting orchestras and choirs at the collegiate level.

            The Outstanding Young Artist series was begun by the board of directors of Cherry Hill as a means of introducing promising young talent and affording them an opportunity to perform in a unique setting as they begin their careers in classical music.

            Admissions will be taken at the door, with adults at $10, students at $5, and children admitted at no charge. A reception will be held following the performance, and the entire 1858 plantation house will be open for touring.
