A component of the Charlotte Symphony's education and engagement efforts, the annual Pro-Am gives community musicians the opportunity to rehearse and perform alongside CSO musicians in a professional setting.

Program Information

Participants spend the afternoon rehearsing side-by-side with Charlotte Symphony musicians in preparation for a free community concert that evening at the Knight Theater. In between, participants and CSO musicians have the opportunity to engage further over a shared meal.     

Pro-Am is open to any musician 18 years and older who plays a traditional symphony instrument. Participants must be able to provide their own instruments.

This program has now passed. Thank you to all of the community musicians who took part in the program this year! View our photo gallery from the free community concert here.
