This October, North Carolina Symphony (NCS) launches its first annual Education Partners month in appreciation of its dozens of school and community collaborators across the state that prioritize the importance of music education.

Events held throughout the month of October will highlight several of these partnerships—both enduring and new—creating opportunities for families, concertgoers, and students of all ages.

Pre-Concert Student Performance with Kidznotes

To launch Education Partners Month, Kidznotes will take the mainstage with NCS for an incredible opportunity to perform in the 1700-seat Meymandi Concert Hall together with select North Carolina Symphony musicians under the baton of Music Director Grant Llewellyn. The performance takes place before an NCS Raleigh Classical Series concert and also serves as Kidznotes’ season-opener.

Select players from the Symphony will be working with Kidznotes students in a Masterclasses prior to their concert night and playing side by side with our students just prior to their the concert.
