Event Details


The United Strings of Color, of the Philharmonic Association – Triangle Youth Music, is making their voice heard in this social justice concert. Through music and poetry, mostly by fellow high school students, we are commemorating black lives lost. This outdoor event is free and open to the public, but to limit audience size and be able to notify of cancellation due to inclement weather, we are asking everyone to register at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c4aa8aa2fa0f5c25-violin1

This is an outdoor event in the amphitheatre. You are advised to bring seating (or a cushion) and protection from sun or rain. The rain date  is Thursday, May 27.

The United Strings of Color (USC) quartet is a high school group begun in Raleigh, NC in 2018 as a project to address racial disparity in classical music. USC has performed at Raleigh’s African American Cultural Festival, with the Durham Symphony, at the North Carolina Museum of Art, for the local Omega Psi Phi Quiz Bowl, for the Raleigh-Wake Chapter of Jack and Jill, multiple area churches, and for Raleigh’s Boys and Girls Club. The group has also been featured as a My Brother’s Keeper partner.
