The North Carolina Symphony is the State orchestra of North Carolina and has a legacy of statewide service and music education. Called by some as the hardest-working orchestra in America with the most extensive education program of any major U.S. orchestra, the North Carolina Symphony last year traveled 18,000 miles, taking Classical and Educational concerts almost every week to over a quarter million North Carolinians. During that 39-week season, the orchestra played 91 Classical concerts, 43 Pops concerts, and 38 Education concerts. Led by Music Director Grant Llewellyn, the North Carolina Symphony continues to pursue its commitment to visionary performances, educating children, and serving the state.
