Hotel deals offered to fall visitors

SALISBURY — History and music advocates have partnered with local hotels to offer a special deal for out-of-town guests attending both OctoberTour and the N.C. Symphony concert next month.
Historic Salisbury Foundation and the Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Society are offering discounted tickets when combined with overnight stays at the Holiday Inn, Comfort Suites or Hampton Inn.
The 36th Annual OctoberTour is Oct. 8 and 9, and the N.C. Symphony will perform in Salisbury at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 8.
Discounted room rates are available from Oct. 6 to 9. A link to each hotel’s special offer can be found at the Salisbury Symphony’s website www.salisburysymphony.org .
These special packages include the cost of tickets to both OctoberTour and the concert. Tickets can be picked up at the hotel counter at time of check-in.
OctoberTour
For 35 years, Salisbury has set aside the second weekend in October for a tour of up to 10 historic sites. The 2011 tour will feature sites dating from 1770-1928 with a mix of private homes, commercial buildings, museum properties, cemeteries and a church.
For those who wish to learn more about historic preservation in Salisbury, the OctoberTour Luncheon will be held at noon Oct. 7 at the St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, featuring a lecture by Cynthia Cole Jenkins entitled “Celebrating Historic Preservation in Salisbury: Looking Back, Looking Forward.”

The N.C. Symphony will present “Great Legends,” including Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, Grieg’s Suite from Peer Gynt and Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, “The Great.”
William Henry Curry, resident conductor, will lead the orchestra in its performance in Keppel Auditorium at Catawba College.
