The North Carolina Symphony is proud to offer Ovations, a pre-concert performance opportunity for student and community groups. On Classical Series concert nights from 7:15pm - 7:45pm we invite small groups of advanced student musicians and community members to perform for North Carolina Symphony audiences. As groups are preparing for concerts and competitions, we would like to give them the opportunity to preview their chosen musical work.
Ovations is sponsored by the WCPE Educational Fund.
A Special thank you to everyone who performed in our 2015-16 Ovations Concert Series! We appreciate all of your efforts in arts education and hope that you will come see us again soon!
