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

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!!!

The orchestra played the music of West Side Story while the remastered movie was screened behind them. We loved it. Also wonderful if you can catch them performing outdoors at the Koka Booth Amphitheater.

We are members and have a full season of performances ahead of us. The orchestra delivers fine performances every time and the venue is easy to find, parking no problem, and attendants most courteous. For a great night out, check their program calendar. Highly recommended.
