Strategic Plan 2021-2025

The 2025 Strategic Plan was created over an eight-month period from October 2020-May 2021. It was begun while COVID was still raging, and completed as most North Carolinians were becoming vaccinated. The CSO continued to perform, to live audiences outdoors and those online, throughout the pandemic. We have learned lessons about our capacity to produce high-quality digital offerings to complement our live performances; and will discover the extent to which there will remain audiences hungry for streamed performances once the pandemic has eased. In May 2021, subscriptions for the CSO's 2021-22 Season went on sale, and we were allowed to resume performances to a live audience indoors for the first time. All this provides context for post-pandemic strategies, especially those under Artistic Vitality, Education, Audience Development and Innovation, which inform this Plan.

The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra would like to thank the following Strategic Planning Committee members, comprised of administrative staff, board members, and musicians, for their extraordinary ideation, visionary thinking and time invested to make the creation of this Strategic Plan possible:

Debbie Abels, John Clapp, David Fisk, Kari Giles, Yih-Han Ma, Taylor Marino, Alex Miles, Glenn Mincey (Chair), Kirsten Morris, Kim Parker, Cory Rogers, Bob Rydel, Melinda Snyder, Candace Sykes, Kevin Walker, and Shanté Williams.
