The North Carolina Symphony was the first state-supported symphony in the country. Its 175 performances annually are greeted with enthusiasm throughout the state, in communities large and small, in concert halls, auditoriums, gymnasiums and outdoor settings. Under the artistic leadership of Music Director Grant Llewellyn, the orchestra has grown in stature and sophistication, now advancing a well-earned reputation for innovative programming and collaborative projects.
The Symphony has an extensive education program, unrivaled by any U.S. orchestra. In addition to youth concerto competitions, master classes, and the Triangle Youth Philharmonic, approximately 45 concerts per year are performed free for school children throughout the state and are part of the schools' music education curriculum.
The Symphony performs in two of the country’s finest performance venues, the spectacular Meymandi Concert Hall at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh and Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary
