Wilmington Symphony Orchestra
Through its “Music for Youth: Engaging Young People” initiative, the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra provides a set of seven unduplicated youth education and outreach programs that broaden the reach and accessibility of symphonic music to children and their families. The Wilmington Symphony Orchestra’s education programs give children and young adults access to excellent performances, cultural experiences and educational opportunities.
Outside of the flagship education programs - WSYO, the Richard R. Deas Young Artists Concerto Competition and the annual Free Family Concert - the WSO also has an Artist-in-Residence program, and provides free school group tickets through its Tickets For Students program.
Each year, around 2,500 students in the Cape Fear Region experience the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra live!
