“North Carolina Symphony Music Discovery” Events in August
Musicians from the North Carolina Symphony will be on hand to read, and the Symphony will offer its Instrument Zoo for young children in the six regional library locations of Wake County Public Libraries in August.
This music education program, “North Carolina Symphony Music Discovery,” is designed for preschool children and their families. PNC awarded a $50,000 grant to the North Carolina Symphony to fund the program, as part of its Grow Up Great initiative, a $350 million, multi-year bilingual initiative that began in 2004 to improve early childhood education.
Programs are also planned throughout the 2014/15 season for Fayetteville, New Bern, Wilmington and Southern Pines.
