    The Really Terrible Orchestra of the Triangle (RTOOT) announces their 2015 Spring Concert, “Folk Songs and Fairy Tales”. Having performed many concerts focused on the real world, the RTOOT is launching itself into the world of fantasy this spring. The RTOOT will approach the celebration of spring with music about Bald Mountain, Hansel and Gretel, Marionettes, English Folk Songs and other selections. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Once again, the RTOOT will offer its audience a delightful combination of orchestral music and unexpected humor.

About the RTOOT: 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.
