Patron support has always been the most important source of revenue for the North Carolina Symphony, and with your help, it always will be.
For a fourth consecutive year, the State of North Carolina has issued an $8 million challenge. The North Carolina Symphony must generate $8 million in community support, and it will be matched with a $1.5 million additional state appropriation.
$6.86 million raised
86% of goal
Comments from patrons:
“Every performance is a delight that everyone within driving distance should experience. The North Carolina Symphony is our state treasure.”
“We both personally enjoy the North Carolina Symphony but also feel that it is a great economic benefit for the Triangle and the state in general.”
“We love the level of artistic quality!”
“I have no doubt that had I not been exposed to the North Carolina Symphony in elementary school, my life would have been completely different. Thank goodness I was able to participate in the making of music as a teacher and choral director. It has been the glue that held my heart and soul together. So much pleasure for a lifetime. I am too old to perform now, but I still have ears to hear.”
“There is admiration for the dedication of all who make the continuation of the NC Symphony possible, especially the musicians. I thank them and will continue to do all I can to support their efforts.”
“I often consider moving away from Raleigh when I retire. But then I think that I just could not leave the Symphony behind. Keep up the good work!”
