North Carolina Symphony Invites Students to Get Involved This Fall

William Henry Curry, Resident Conductor, rehearses the North Carolina Symphony and Concert Singers of Cary for the Holiday Pops Concert.

How much do two North Carolina Symphony concert tickets cost? For members of the new NCS Street Team, only a few hours.

The North Carolina Symphony is enlisting college and high school-age volunteers to help promote its upcoming classical and pops seasons. Students in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and the surrounding North Carolina communities who love music and want to have fun with friends while helping out the Symphony can volunteer for two hours or more and receive the opportunity to experience the brilliance of a North Carolina Symphony concert live.

Volunteers will support the Symphony by distributing flyers and providing an informative community resource during downtown Raleigh’s First Fridays, Triangle-area events or cultural gatherings where they live, visit, study and work. Ideal Street Team members will put themselves in the middle of the action, enthusiastic and eager to generate excitement about the Symphony’s upcoming season.

First-time Street Team members will receive a free T-shirt and two tickets to an upcoming Symphony concert. Continued efforts will earn volunteers additional tickets. The more you volunteer, the more Symphony you can see for free.

Volunteer opportunities will begin in early September. For complete information or to sign up for the NCS Street Team, visit or call 919.789.5481.
