The Western Piedmont Symphony Chamber Orchestra will be in Lincolnton Friday.  First, as a part of its Symphony in Schools Education Program, the orchestra will perform a concert from noon - 1 PM for students in the Lincoln County Schools. 

One of the most important traditions of the Symphony is the presentation of concerts to public school students. The chamber orchestra and resident quartet will perform for over 30,000 students in elementary and middle school grades this school year.

Every year a curriculum is developed that’s available to teachers to help them prepare the students for the music they will hear. Lesson plans and teaching guides with state-aligned curriculum are available to music education teachers.

The Chamber Orchestra is made up of 30-40 professional musicians largely from western North Carolina. This group travels throughout the region performing in-school concerts as well as public performances in rural parts of the state where little to no access to live classical music performance is available.

On Friday evening at 6:30, the orchestra will perform a public concert at the Citizens Center.  Admission is $20 for adults, $15 for students and senior citizens.  Tickets will be available at the door.

The Western Piedmont Symphony, headquartered in Hickory, was founded in 1964.  For more information about the Symphony, visit their website at
