About the Series

Through our Meet the Instruments series, sponsored by MetLife Foundation and Puffin Foundation West, Ltd., students will get to know the many instruments that make up a symphony orchestra—as well as the North Carolina Symphony musicians who play them!

Meet the Instruments is created especially for elementary school students, but audiences of all ages are likely to discover new things about the instruments of the orchestra!
