THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22

N.C. SYMPHONY: RACHMANINOFF'S PIANO CONCERTO NO. 1

At the close of its 2015–16 season in May, the North Carolina Symphony realized that it, too, was unable to avoid the impact of HB 2 on its programming. Guest performer Noah Bendix-Balgley spoke about the bill from the stage, and a couple of weeks later, renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman canceled his scheduled appearance in protest, leaving the institution in the lurch. This week, though, the symphony opens its new season on a more positive—and Russian-themed—note, with two works by Stravinsky and one each by Rachmaninoff and Mikhail Glinka comprising the program. The symphony plays it again in Raleigh at Meymandi Concert Hall on Friday and Saturday. —Allison Hussey
