Student Performances

NCCMI hosts a number of events for the ensembles. The general public are welcome to attend these free events!

Each ensemble must perform in one Performance Review and one Formal Concert as part of the NCCMI curriculum requirements.

Performance Reviews

Each ensemble presents the highlights from its fall repertoire in a formal concert setting, complete with verbal introductions and bows!

A faculty panel gives written comments that are used in the second semester rehearsal plan. Groups are scored on basic musical elements (pitch, rhythm, etc.) and more sophisticated metrics (ensemble cohesiveness, style, musical communication, etc.).

Spring Formal Concerts & Awards

These concerts are the culmination of each ensemble’s yearly efforts. They are formal occasions with an award ceremony and reception to follow! Students participate in NCCMI for multiple years, their repertoire becoming more challenging and complex along the way. Awards are given for Exceptional Community Service, Graduating Seniors and Outstanding NCCMI Students.

2021 Spring Concerts will take place on Sunday, May 16, at 12:30 and 3:00 pm. See our calendar for more information.
