Carolina Live features music from two concerts by the South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra.

Two strong musical events, and you get to sample both on this edition of Carolina Live.

Winston-Salem Symphony: A Concert for Peace

Week of March 24, 2019

The combined power of the Winston-Salem Symphony and the Symphony Chorale is heard and felt on this Carolina Live, as the musicians perform Karl Jenkins’ compelling The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace and Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 1 (Jeremiah). The latter, while certainly not as well-known as much of Bernstein’s other music, is a powerful work. Please join us for this concert titled A Concert for Peace on Carolina Live.
