Stockton Symphony Town Hall Meeting — Join us on July 7th at 4PM via Zoom
These are the values your Stockton Symphony embraces at this time of uncertainty and change. Optimism creates a sense of possibility, approaching challenges from a positive perspective, and taking advantage of opportunities when they present themselves. Excellence shows our commitment to the highest artistic and professional standards. We passionately serve as good stewards of Your Stockton Symphony. You, our valued stakeholders, are essential in fulfilling the mission of the Stockton Symphony to inspire joy and build community through the magic of music.
The Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to restructure the 2020/2021 season. It is unclear how soon we will hold a concert in the Atherton Auditorium. We expect to meet again in January 2021, but we are not standing still. We are moving forward with optimism and excitement as we find opportunities to connect with you and our diverse community in innovative and creative ways. Mark your calendars for an online town hall meeting on July 7th at 4PM as we will be announcing our plans for next season.

The staff and musicians value your annual commitment as a stakeholder of the Stockton Symphony. Your passion for the music that Maestro Peter Jaffe and the talented musicians bring to each piece selected for your enjoyment, is rewarded by your applause and BRAVO! response. As the music plays we experience a deep connection with one another that feeds our soul. It truly is a beautiful partnership, but many members of our community need to be more vigorously included and welcomed into our experience: Inclusion.
In addition to the COVID pandemic, our country is in a time of turmoil as it addresses the issues of race, class, other forms of inequity and unintentional exclusion. We recognize the gap between our mission to serve every member of our community and our history of failing properly to address systemic racism and implicit bias. In solidarity with our remarkably diverse community, we are committed to looking inward, and we acknowledge our responsibility to be a catalyst for change. This change includes organizational training, seeking out diverse talent, and developing more inclusive programming. Music is a beautiful expression of love of humankind—we want everyone in our community to feel welcome and included.
We are so very grateful to those of you who chose to generously donate the remainder of last season’s tickets; it made a tremendous difference. As we move forward, we hope you will choose to further partner with us by investing in Your Stockton Symphony in much the same way you have contributed to us through your subscription. Your gifts are the instruments we use to bring music to our community. Visit our website at stocktonsymphony.org for giving opportunities.
Again, thank you for your partnership and commitment to our beloved Stockton Symphony. Please plan to join us on July7th at 4PM for a town hall to answer your questions and concerns on the 2020/2021 Season. You may email your questions ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org
