Wonderful music

I have always loved the symphony and went often in Cleveland, OH. Our NC symphony is very good and I enjoy listening every chance I get. The 4th of July show is fantastic.

Not only can you hear the NC Symphony in Raleigh but regularly in Chapel Hill and often in other locations around the state. It is a good resource for the people of NC and don't forget to bring your children!

The NC Symphony has apparently been around a long while, and it was fun to attend a performance as part of their 80th anniversary. Their execution of Korsakov's Scheherazade was excellent, one of my favorite works!

Went three times this year, and each was terrific. Beautiful hall and even the drinks and snacks are good. Got to have the brownies! If you can park on the lot just before the hall on W. South St. It's in the trees and just a little sign, but it's only $5 (vs. $7 now in the garage) and a... More

We've been patrons and season members of the NC Symphony for over 15 years, and it is the best donation we've ever made. William Henry Curry is full of character and always a delight to watch conduct. Our son is 15 now, so this summer (2013) will be his 16th summer in attendance at Summerfest.

BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO! If you can't make their regular concerts, I would encourage your family & friends to join in on the NC Symphony Summerfest series. Bring your picnic baskets and adult beverages and enjoy the best of Raleigh on a nice summer night. Kids love it too!

In an attempt to maintain its relevance in these modern times and attract younger audiences, the NC Symphony has paired itself with relatively modern artists of Rock and R&B to bring us beautiful music with a contemporary twist.

We had an awesome time attending a concert with the schools. The director was very friendly and helpful by letting the kids hear all of the different instruments.

I have seen them over and over. I even saw them with the moody blues in concert. Get tickets any time you can, it is a great experience.
