About the Concerts

For more than 75 years, the North Carolina Symphony’s Education Concerts have brought music to life for third through fifth graders across the state. Centered around the theme of “What Makes Music, Music?,” the one-hour concert explores fundamentals such as melody, rhythm, dynamics, tempo, and texture.

The 2023/24 Education Concert for grades 3-5 will be offered live and in person, as well as online for in-school or at-home learning. Reservations for in-person concerts at Meymandi Concert Hall will open in September. Information about virtual and livestream options will be available later in the fall.

The Teacher Workshop will present curriculum-aligned lessons for both programs to pair with your concert experience, whether online or in person.
