Spring 2014 Concert

The Really Terrible Orchestra of the Triangle (RTOOT) announces their 2014 Spring Concert, “Celebrating Spring – The RTOOT Tries Again”.

About the Really Terrible Orchestra of the Triangle (RTOOT): Known for its unique combination of classical music and unexpected humor, the Really Terrible Orchestra of the Triangle (RTOOT) again performs at The Cary Arts Center. The original Really Terrible Orchestra (RTO) was founded in Edinburgh, Scotland by author Alexander McCall Smith.

In the Triangle area, the RTOOT started in May 2008 and is currently composed of approximately sixty musicians all of whom practice diligently and make every effort to play wonderful music with as much skill and accomplishment as possible. However, it is an RTOOT concert. And one can only imagine what might happen when the RTOOT attempts to celebrate spring.
