If you enjoy live classical music in an intimate setting, the 12th Annual Carolina Chamber Music Festival takes place September 9th through the 13th in downtown New Bern. Public Radio East's Mac McKee speaks with Director Jennifer Lucht about this year's events.
This week on the Down East Journal, a workshop on February 20th aims to connect K-12 teachers with local environmental scientists to help students learn coastal biology lessons. We visit a 3rd grade class at the Tiller School in Beaufort where scientists are teaching students about coastal ecology and food chains. And, the North Carolina Symphony will make a stop in New Bern next week where they will perform one of the most powerful pieces of music ever written, Beethoven's 5th Symphony.
