Because every child deserves to love exceptional music.


Our story. Eight years ago, Maestro Wolff launched The Carolina Philharmonic with a singular goal: to create a Symphony Orchestra that would not simply embrace audiences of all ages, but reach out to our audiences for support to bring music to children.Twenty-five children served in the first year grew to fifty the next, then 100, then 1,100. To date we've served over 10,000 children and continue to bring the joy of exceptional music through interactive musical experiences and curricula to thousands of local children every year.

Join us by donating. Our education programs cost $50 per child on average. We serve several thousand children every year, yet we receive no state or governmental funding. What we do is made possible only through private donations from patrons like you. Donate here online. or send a donation to "Carolina Philharmonic", at 5 Market Square, Pinehurst, NC, 28374. You may also call our Box Office at 910-687-0287 and make a donation by phone.  We are a 501(c)3 and every donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
