Youth Chamber Music Pop-Up Concerts
The NCMA is alive with music once again! Join us for an afternoon of pop-up chamber music concerts in West Building and throughout the park. Stumble upon one of our seven youth chamber music groups 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.
United Strings of Color
The Philharmonic Association’s United Strings of Color began in 2018 as a project to address racial disparity in classical music by encouraging all young people to pursue music making. The string quartet has performed at Raleigh’s African American Cultural Festival, with the Durham Symphony, and for Raleigh’s Boys and Girls Club. The group has also been featured as a My Brother’s Keeper partner.
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.
