Message from our Chairman
The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra is proud to be in its seventh season under the direction of Maestro Raffaele Ponti. The Orchestra attracts a roster of over 70+ statewide professional musicians, as well as world-renowned guest artists and has consistently performed for sold-out audiences in beautiful Punta Gorda’s Charlotte Performing Arts Center. For the 2019-2020 season, the orchestra’s repertoire is again international in scope, including fresh offerings from contemporary composers and grand classical symphonic giants. Maestro Ponti has planned six evening concerts and a December matinee concert, as well as the annual Young Peoples’ Concert. This season will also include expanded educational programs for music lovers of all ages through master classes, lectures, and off-site performances.
