North Carolina Symphony Seeking College Students for NCS Street Team

Posted: September 06, 2011
For students who daydream about following around their favorite music group, the North Carolina Symphony can make their dreams come true. College-age students are invited to earn free tickets to North Carolina Symphony concerts across the state by joining the NCS Street Team as a campus representative.

Street Team members, led by a Street Team Manager, will learn the ins and outs of filling the seats at a Symphony concert—a task that can be both challenging and fun. Plus, they get a free t-shirt!

Street Team members attend the Southern Woman’s Show; Bugfest; downtown Raleigh’s First Fridays; campus activities and at a variety of other public events to provide a laid-back, in-person resource for community members, students and arts lovers to keep in touch with the state’s premier orchestra and oldest cultural organization.

Along the way, Street Team members receive hands-on training from members of the North Carolina Symphony’s marketing and audience development team on the latest efforts in arts marketing, including guerilla marketing campaigns, social media initiatives and more.

Above all, Street Team members can make the group their own. They are encouraged to create unique campus marketing plans to best serve their friends and fellow students in communicating the Symphony’s unique offerings, including $10 student tickets for most classical and pops concerts across the state.

To apply to join this exciting, young crew of arts world up-and-comers, visit and send an application via email to or mail Leigh Stringfellow, North Carolina Symphony Audience Development Coordinator, 3700 Glenwood Ave, Suite 130, Raleigh, NC 27603.

For questions, call Leigh at 919.789.5504.
