Charlotte Concerts is ultimately focused on furthering the education of students in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District and ensuring that music is accessible to all. Through a network of opportunities, Charlotte Concerts is able to extend a variety  of music education initiatives to students; from complimentary student tickets to view internationally acclaimed artists in concert, to providing the instruments which can allow students an opportunity to experience music on a personal level.

Music does change lives. Join us!


The organization is governed by a versatile and diverse Board of Directors, its Emeritus Directors, and an Advisory Board. These groups oversee all aspects of the organization’s operations, from artist selection and promotion, to financial development and educational outreach programs. Our boards and advisory groups are made up of community leaders, business leaders, educators and professionals interested in promoting the arts in Charlotte and its surroundings.
