Arts March for Racial Justice and Equity

On Tuesday June 2nd over 100 people marched at the "Arts March for Racial Justice and Equity" organized by our Seattle Symphony musicians’ union, the Seattle Symphony and Opera Players’ Organization (SSOPO).

Seattle Symphony Principal Flute, Demarre McGill writes:

I believe it’s part of our mission as artists to uplift people and communities. Most of the time, this is done by touching the spirit through music; however, this should definitely not stop at the concert hall, in part because the people who really need uplifting aren’t in our concert halls. If we truly believe in this mission, it will be easier to know what changes need to be made, personally and organizationally, in order to fulfill this mission. All of this provides beautiful context and purpose for our gifts, which we can then use to better the world.

We have more to hear, more to learn and more to do.
