When it comes to great performing arts in North Carolina's Research Triangle Region, your options are limited only by the length of your visit. Whether you choose to rest overnight in Chapel Hill/Orange County, Durham or Raleigh/Wake County, there's a surrounding region that’s filled with things for arts-lovers to do.
For lovers of the four major disciplines, we’ve got you covered:
Most of the Triangle’s 12 colleges and universities, including Duke, Meredith College, N.C. Central, N.C. State and UNC, stage student productions and also host international performers during their school year. Savvy visitors can experience one-of-a-kind performances through these school’s arts programs.
What’s more, there are burgeoning entertainment and nightlife scenes throughout the Triangle. These offer thousands of opportunities to enjoy live music and local bands any time of year. Carrboro and Chapel Hill are known as indie-rock havens, Durham is remembered for jazz and Bull City blues and Greater Raleigh is noted for its PNC Arena and five concert amphitheatres.
