Because every child deserves to love exceptional music.

Our story. Seven 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 13,000 children and continue to bring the joy of exceptional music through interactive musical experiences and curricula to thousands of local children every year. We're pushing the boundaries of the possible while exploring cutting edge trends in the field of Music Education.

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.
