Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera serves to inspire, engage, and enrich the greater Chattanooga community through music and music education. Music continues to be a vehicle to bring our communities together in the ongoing effort to end systemic racism, discrimination, and injustice. We believe that our staff, musicians, and patrons deserve respect and representation inclusive of race, religion, socio-economic status, sexuality, and gender identity.  We pledge to center the discussion of diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout our operations and activities.
