Be inspired.  Inspire others.

At Carolina Performing Arts, inspiration is at the heart of what we do.  We present the very best in music, dance, and theater performances that will move you, challenge you, and enrich your life.

Share the inspiration and join other supporters who keep Carolina Performing Arts (CPA) vibrant and strong.  Tickets sales cover only 40 percent of the costs of presenting our season.  Private donations make up the difference and help keep our seasons filled with world-class artists, our stages brimming with new commissions and world and U.S. premieres, and our community engaged with educational and fun outreach programs.

Without private support, we’d be at a loss.  And so would the 40,000 people who attend CPA performances every year.
