On November 5, voters in Mecklenburg County will be asked to approve a quarter-cent sales tax referendum that will provide additional funding for our parks, arts and education. Gas, groceries, and medicine are exempt from the increase.

What a vote FOR means to your Charlotte Symphony:

1. Support for Project Harmony, our free after-school orchestra program for elementary school students in the Winterfield, Montclaire, West Blvd, and West Sugar Creek neighborhoods.

2. Access to musical experiences for thousands of students and community members.

3. Support for our community and education programs, which impact more than 35,000 Charlotte-Mecklenburg residents each year.

4. Inspiration for the next generation of musicians, conductors, teachers, and arts administrators.

Hear the difference we're making

Go behind the scenes of a Project Harmony rehearsal in Culture For All podcast Episode 3: Arts In and Out of the Classroom. In this episode, Mary C. Curtis invites you into classrooms around the county to hear how arts programming is serving our children every day. 

FOR our kids. FOR our community. FOR all of us.

When you vote FOR on the November referendum, you're voting for expanded parks and greenways; enhanced arts, science, and history programs; and to help our kids fulfill their potential.
