NC Symphony 

When: Sept. 24-25, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $30 and up

The North Carolina Symphony opens its 2010–11 season with a trio of stirring orchestral works Friday and Saturday, tapping into repertoire from Beethoven, Mahler and Schubert. With a hefty dose of emotional turmoil on the Mahler side and a virtuosic showcase on the Beethoven end, the orchestra is diving into a season set to include composer portraits of Mozart, Mahler and John Adams; outside-the-Triangle performances in New Bern, Fayetteville, Wilmington and Southern Pines; and a weighty list of classical works contrasting a six-concert pops program.

A performance of Beethoven's "Triple" Concerto, the centerpiece of Friday and Saturday's programs, will guest-star Navah Perlman on piano, Giora Schmidt on violin and Zuill Bailey on cello. Also on tap are Schubert's "Unfinished" Symphony No. 8 in B minor and a movement of Mahler's Symphony No. 10.

Music director Grant Llewellyn—at the helm since 2004—will guide the ensemble. Llewellyn signed on for four more years earlier in the month. The renewal comes during a transition for the symphony, which announced the resignation of former president and CEO David Chambless Worters on Sept. 1. The group hopes to select a new president/ CEO in three to six months. Tickets for Friday's and Saturday's shows start at $30, and performances start at 8 p.m. —Margaret Hair
