Free education performances by N.C. Symphony
Every year, the North Carolina Symphony and its ensembles present free education performances to elementary and middle school-age students across North Carolina. The concerts feature special demonstrations by conductors and musicians in a lineup that highlights music's building blocks: rhythm, dynamics, texture, tempo, form and melody. The concerts run from September to May. This year's lineup includes selections by Mozart, Haydn and Strauss. Students will recognize one of music's most famous melodies in Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" and get a little American flavor in Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer," the theme to the movie "The Sting."
