Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., Theater in the Museum Park
The NCMA is alive with music once again! Join us for an afternoon of pop-up chamber music in West Building and throughout the Museum Park. Stumble upon one of our seven youth quartets or quintets as you wander through our campus.
Performing groups include:
The North Carolina Chamber Music Institute (NCCMI), founded by North Carolina Symphony musicians Elizabeth Beilman and Jimmy Gilmore, is a unique and powerful way to train young musicians. Each student is an essential part of a team, coached by inspiring teachers, and given opportunities to perform in high-exposure settings. NCCMI is funded in part by the City of Raleigh, the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County, and the N.C. Arts Council and is dedicated to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Philharmonic Association String Quartet
This ensemble has a long tradition of musical service. They have performed before the North Carolina Symphony and North Carolina Opera, at the NCMA’s SECU Auditorium, at Asia Fest’s banquet, and at festivals, retirement communities, museums, and numerous community events. Currently coached by Bonnie Thron, the quartet continues to attain high levels of musicianship.
Triangle Youth Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet
The Triangle Youth Philharmonic Wind Quintet performs repertoire for clarinet, flute, horn, oboe, and bassoon. The quintet has a long history of excellence and success and traveled to Cary’s sister city, Le Touquet, France, in 2014. The coach is Mary Boone, assistant principal flute with the North Carolina Symphony.
