North Carolina Symphony - Theme Music of Favorite Heroes and Villains

  • 2 East South Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

Ever since heroes and villains have been depicted in movies, there has been theme music to represent them—and that music is now nearly synonymous with the characters themselves. At Meymandi Concert Hall this January, the North Carolina Symphony will perform music representing “the best and the baddest” at the family-friendly program Heroes & Villains!.  

This Young People’s Concert is a perfect way to introduce young children to the symphony with music that will be immediately recognizable and exciting—including selections from Harry Potter, The Incredibles, Batman, Superman, Pirates of the Caribbean, and much more. The concert, led by newly named NCS Associate Conductor Wesley Schulz, will be performed twice on the afternoon of Saturday, January 6, at 1pm and 4pm.

Beginning an hour before show-time, children will meet favorite characters from Harry Potter, Star Wars, Batman, Superman and Supergirl, and Pirates of the Caribbean in the Meymandi Concert Hall lobby. Children are also invited to take part in hands-on pre-concert activities, including face-painting with Paint Savvy as well as the Symphony’s Instrument Zoo, which gives kids the opportunity to try out instruments of the orchestra for themselves. 

A discounted two-concert subscription package is available, including tickets for both remaining Young People’s Concerts this season. The final Young People’s Concert of the 2017/18 season, The Firebird in April, presents a mystical tale told through puppetry, shadow play, and magic.

This program is part of a larger grant given by PetSmart Charities and Margaret T. Petrie Spaying and Neutering Foundation that will allow the SAFE Care Clinic to perform over 1,000 spays and neuters this year.
