Join us for a North Carolina Symphony Gala

Saturday, October 7, 2017

A black-tie evening under the stars of City Plaza on Fayetteville Street featuring celebrity chef Vivian Howard

We invite you to join us for a magical black-tie evening that will take place on Saturday, October 7, under twinkling lights in the heart of downtown Raleigh. City Plaza will be transformed with sparkling chandeliers seeming to hang from the sky under a translucent canopy. At beautifully adorned tables running along Fayetteville Street, arts lovers of our community will come together to enjoy a meal envisioned and prepared by James Beard Award-winner Vivian Howard—co-owner of Kinston, North Carolina’s much-raved-about Chef and the Farmer restaurant, star of PBS’s A Chef’s Life, and author of the new book Deep Run Roots.

Don't miss this opportunity to experience Chef Howard's famous Southern cuisine in the heart of the Triangle! After cocktails and a delicious dinner in her tradition of local, farm-to-table ingredients, guests will enjoy a late-night dessert reception. The evening supports the North Carolina Symphony in our mission to bring inspiring classical music performances and invaluable music education to the entire state of North Carolina.

Tickets go on sale June 2017
