North Shore Philharmonic Back on Stage Sunday

Next Sunday, Same Time, Same Program
The North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra has postponed its Winter Concert, scheduled for February 10, to next Sunday, February 17, 3 p.m. at Swampscott High School.

"With a snow date in place, we felt the conditions warranted the postponement." People holding tickets for today's concert will be able to use them next week. The concert features violinist Irina Muresanu in the Dvorak violin concerto and Beethoven's historic Symphony No. 3. Tickets are available at www.nspo.org and also …
