“Melts my heart!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I have seen them over and over. I even saw them with the moody blues in concert. Get tickets any time you can, it is a great experience.

“They do a great job, catch something here”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

When they had Natalie Merchant in was the best they have ever done. Just fantastic! It's all about your own taste in music as to what you'll enjoy. You can have light snacks, beer and wine and parking is easy and often free

“Raleigh's Best Kept Entertainment Secret”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We attended the New Year's Eve Symphony Presentation. The orchestra presented scores and songs from the Big Band Era including The Glenn Miller Orchestra! The highlight of the
evening was a rendition of The Blue Danube. Delightful!

“NC Symphony: Clean and crisp while tantilizingly smooth music”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I won a couple tickets to a Pointer Sister's concert at the NC Symphony. I didn't expect to be up close and I wasn't. I sat in the upper center right balcony. I had a better view then I could possibly believe. Remarkably, there were other areas in the balconies that were open that night. My partner and I moved around a couple times during the concert to see the difference. No matter where you are seated the sound quality is tremendous and the ability to see the performers is beyond expectations. The Symphony itself was like waves on a calm ocean. They were able to blend their orchestrations with the Pointer Sisters musiciansso well that I believed them to have played together for years. The addition of the Symphony to the Pointer Sister's Music that evening enhanced their numbers so well that I could swear the artists themselves lit their performance up beyond every piece of music I had ever listened to by them. It was a different blend of instruments than I had ever seen, and truly a wonderful experience. I will be seeing and hearing more of the NC Symphony and their auditorium. I rated the NC Symphony "Excellent" becuse there was nothing higher.
