The NCMA and Come Hear NC present Music at the Museum Festival

The Music at the Museum Festival is a day to celebrate North Carolina music, people, and places. The NCMA welcomes back five artists from the Museum’s free livestreamed and PBS–broadcasted Music at the Museum series, this time to the Amphitheater stage. The artists you enjoyed on screen invite you to come see them live and in person in the Museum Park.

The Music at the Museum series started during the pandemic to showcase diverse North Carolina bands that represent our state’s rich musical landscape. Recorded in the Museum galleries and presented with Come Hear North Carolina, this virtual concert series kicked off September 1, 2020, and premiered on PBS NC in April 2021.
