The Raleigh Civic Symphony plays a concert.

The Raleigh Civic Symphony, a program of NC State’s Department of Music, will celebrate the music of North Carolina composers in a concert 4 p.m. Sunday, April 22, in Stewart Theatre inside the Talley Student Union. Tickets for the concert are available online or through Ticket Central (1–6 p.m. Monday–Friday), either in person at the Ticket Central office in Thompson Hall or by phone at (919) 515-1100.

The concert will feature Cripple Creek and Mountain Song, composed by Raleigh’s own Lamar Stringfield, the founder of the North Carolina Symphony.
