The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra hosts a rally in Uptown Charlotte at Trade and Tryon streets, at high noon on Thursday, August 27th. Ensembles of Charlotte Symphony musicians will perform, and Governor James G. Martin, Chair-elect of the Board of Directors, will speak.
“This has been a challenging and eventful summer for the Symphony,” says CSO Executive Director Jonathan Martin. “Throughout these months, we have been encouraged by the tremendous show of community support, from the generous Summer Pops donations and increased annual fund giving to the strong subscription sales. The Symphony is working diligently to become a healthier institution both financially and artistically, and we will be sharing exciting news next Thursday of our progress so far.”
The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra is the largest performing arts organization in the Charlotte region. The Symphony opens its 78th season on September 11 and 12. This season marks Christof Perick’s ninth and final season as Music Director. Music Director Designate Christopher Warren-Green will succeed Mr. Perick in the fall of 2010.
