In accordance with state and local health and safety guidelines for public events and gatherings, North State Symphony has adjusted season programming to include virtual events and online engagement opportunities through the remainder of 2020, with a hopeful return to live performances in 2021.

We thank our patrons for their support during this uncertain time. We look forward to "seeing" you in the months ahead, whether virtually, or in person!

About FALL/2020 : VIRTUAL

Throughout fall 2020, North State Symphony will feature a virtual concert with repertoire for smaller ensembles, chosen and performed by our musicians and aired on a specific date each month online and on public access TV.  We’ll also host watch parties of past performances, Musician Accents interviews where Maestro Seaton chats with NSS musicians and finds out about their lives away from the symphony, our virtual Just Ask! series with fascinating interviews and conversations across the artistic spectrum, and much more!

Thanks to the generous support of sponsors and individuals like you, all of our virtual Fall events are FREE and open to ALL!   In addition, Season Ticket Subscribers will get access to exclusive online content, including special musical performances and interviews.
