This Friday, Oct. 19, the North Carolina Symphony will be performing at the Schaefer Center for Performing Arts at 7 p.m.
The North Carolina Symphony is an indispensable part of North Carolina’s cultural narrative. Founded as America’s first statewide orchestra in 1932, and traveling 18,500 miles throughout the state to engage 250,000 people each year, NCS is committed to presenting artistically excellent performances that delight and inspire.
“Each work we present has a story to share, and our ever-present hope is that our audiences connect to these powerful musical narratives—whether it is the triumph in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, the humor in Strauss’ depiction of Don Quixote, or the history of North Carolina’s native people reflected in a new work,” said NCS Music Director Grant Llewellyn.
“The North Carolina Symphony’s own story is one of dedication to our entire state, providing orchestral experiences that are not only of exceptional artistic caliber, but that are meaningful to the lives of those we serve,” said NCS President and CEO Sandi Macdonald.
The performance features Llewellyn as conductor, Eliza Bagg as soprano and the Cherokee Chamber Singers.
Adult tickets are priced at $20, student and child tickets at $10 and faculty and staff tickets at $15. Discounted tickets for students, faculty and staff must be purchased at the box office or via phone at (800) 841-2787. Adult and child tickets can be purchased online.
