Founded eight years ago the Carolina Philharmonic’s ambitious vision “to impact the lives of children one child at a time” is now a reality.
Under the direction of Maestro David Michael Wolff over 10,000 elementary Moore County school children have experienced the joy of learning and performing exceptional music.
The organization believes in keeping the critical learning experience alive in the continuing wake of arts programs budget cuts, as study after study shows that through music education programs children improve their math and literacy skills, think more creatively, solve problems easier, and gain self confidence, self control, tolerance and empathy.
Simply put, exposure to meaningful music education programs transforms young lives and thereby our communities.
Both its Encore! Kids and Link Up programs are offered by the Carolina Philharmonic to all Moore County public elementary schools at no cost through the generous support of foundations, private donors and fund raising events.
Each year these programs provide a quality music curriculum and classroom materials for more than 3,500 K-2 and fourth grade students, as well as professional development instruction for Moore County educators to ensure the programs are an engaging and instructive experience.
At the end of the school year, both programs engage students as participants in a multi-media, interactive culminating full symphony orchestra concert, a life changing event all will remember the rest of their lives.
In addition, this year the Carolina Philharmonic is underwriting the cost of teaching 100 students how to play a string instrument.
Several groups of students from the Philharmonic’s Junior Orchestra after-school program performed beautifully for various groups throughout the holidays.
Each year The Carolina Philharmonic needs to raise $200,000 to cover the costs of it music education programs.
You can help by playing in its second Annual Charity Golf Tournament and supporting its silent auction.
Besides having a great time, every $50 raised underwrites the cost of one of its 3,500 Moore County students currently participating in this year’s program. If you can't participate, please consider sending in a donation.
