I visited the NC symphony for Raphsody in Blue and I loved it! Such expert musicians and great acoustics made it really enjoyable. If only they would limit the serving of alcoholic beverages though. I've been to concerts here before, were patrons have had way too much to drink and they start to get rowdy and beligerent. I felt as... More

You just don't need to go to New York or London for world-class classical music. The music, musicians, and conductor of the NC Symphony are terrific. The programs offered are equally terrific. The venue is very comfortable with wonderful acoustics. There is plenty of parking just across the street in a parking deck. I've been to a number of performances... More

On Friday evening, 1/09/15, we attended the NC Symphony's concert in Meymandi Hall featuring 2 of Gershwin's most well known works, Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris. The orchestra is world class and the presentation of these two pieces was outstanding. I will admit the "Rusty Air in NC" was well performed but that and the dissonant piece... More

Took my 13-yr old grandson for the Peter & The Wolf performance. Prior to symphony, there are several instruments the youth (and adults) are permitted to try. There was also face painting for younger youth; corn hole, etc. Lots of younger children there, was concerned that they'd be bored, could be disruptive, etc., but none of this occured. All seemed...

Attended the Pink Martini holiday concert with the North Carolina Symphony. Neither disappointed, Pink Martini always delivers a super entertaining show. The North Carolina Symphony is well known for their solid performances in the region. Event was almost sold out

I have attended the symphony on and off over the years. In the past, they had well known and well respected musicians in their regular season, now they only have "special guest" on "special concerts" with high ticket prices. I am not sure if they have a dress code as some of the members dress poorly to perform on stage.... More

Superb musicians and conductors. Programs for all classical and pops tastes. Affordable tickets usually available from box office at performance if you are traveling and looking for a great evening of music.

The North Carolina Symphony is outstanding and well worth purchasing tickets for either classical or pop type performances. In Raleigh they perform at the Meymandi Concert Hall which has excellent acoustics. Highly recommend!!!
