The NC Symphony works in conjunction with the NC Department of Public Instruction to develop programs within its music education curriculum, including a focus on the impact music education has in areas such as math, reading, and intellectual and social development. The orchestra hosts an average of 50 school concerts/programs annually and receives more requests than they can meet.
