The Department of Performing Arts and Technology receives minimal state-appropriated support and relies heavily on ticket revenues and student fees to provide quality academic experiences and programming to the students, faculty and staff of NC State, as well as to the Triangle community.

A large corporate gift helps us achieve our mission of serving the music interests of all NC State students by enabling us to invest in music technology, create memorable performance and travel opportunities, and provide quality equipment for our student-musicians.

Additionally, we rely on corporate gifts and sponsorships to invite guest musicians and lecturers for our Price Music Center Series, which is open to the public, helping us achieve our mission to serve as a cultural resource for students and our community by cultivating lifelong learning and music-making.
