Today, Blackout Tuesday

Dear Pacific Symphony Family,

_DSC0601-originalI write these words with a heavy heart, but with a strong commitment to change. I want you to know that Pacific Symphony stands in solidarity with members of the Black community, who continue to experience systemic racism. What we have witnessed this week – and so many times before – is heart-rending and tragic.

We grieve. We mourn. We pledge to support greater equity. We commit to inspiring deeper understanding through the transformative and universal language of music.

Today we observe Black-Out Tuesday, reflecting on our role as a leading cultural organization to help shine a light on and help address the inequities and racism that impact communities of color.

—Pacific Symphony President John Forsyte
