19/20 Season Pre-Concert Talk Schedule

The Charlotte Symphony has made the difficult decision to suspend all concerts through June due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19. The CSO is working quickly to reschedule as many concerts as possible and will be in touch with ticket-holders in the coming weeks.
