NC Symphony's Polar Express Food Drive

The North Carolina Symphony is partnering with the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle's BackPack Buddies to collect "soup-to-go" at their Polar Express and Home Alone performances at Raleigh's Meymandi Concert Hall during Thanksgiving Week! The goal is to collect 500 pounds of food and help feed thousands of local kids!

PLUS, to show their thanks for your donation, the Symphony will give you a coupon to save $20 on one of their January concerts.


The Polar Express - November 22, 3pm

Listen for the sound of silver bells and climb aboard in your jammies for a first-class journey on the Polar Express! You’ll see the paintings from the Caldecott Medal-winning picture book on a giant screen above the stage as a narrator and a chorus of children join the Symphony to bring the words of this magical holiday tale to life. Come early to meet Santa and enjoy kid-friendly activities, and join us for our traditional sing-a-long!
