Spokane Symphony Board of Trustees and Musicians Support Our Multi-Ethnic Community
The Spokane Symphony mourns ongoing racial injustices perpetrated on Black people and all People of Color in our community and around the country. We are a multi-ethnic community. We pledge to work with all community leaders to fight racism with antiracism behaviors, and to help heal the deep wounds that hold us apart. We are intimately related at many levels. Thus, racial injustice has no place in our society.
Music must be a place free of division. The Spokane Symphony has always welcomed people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds, but there is more to do. We are rededicating ourselves to ensure that all people can share and enjoy the music we make.
