Greensboro, NC – The Greensboro Symphony Orchestra (GSO) announces an exciting new partnership with Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. The Tanger Outlets will serve as the Masterworks and POPS series sponsor for the 2013-2014 season, which encompasses 17 classical and pops performances. Concerts will range from the music of James Bond with jazz singer Hilary Kole, to Beethoven’s epic Violin Concerto with Dmitry Sitkovetsky, to Broadway favorites with Doug LaBrecque, Emily Rozek and Nicole Parker.
This is an enormously significant partnership for the Symphony, considering the incredible success and national presence of the Tanger Outlets brand. “This is a game-changer for the Greensboro Symphony,” said Lisa Crawford, President & CEO of the GSO.
This partnership follows on the heels of the September 9th announcement that Tanger Outlets CEO Steven B. Tanger made a personal pledge of $7.5 million to the construction of Greensboro’s proposed performing arts center. Tanger’s gift, the largest yet for the project, afforded naming rights for the building, making it the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts.
The Greensboro Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1959 and provides the Triad region with a wealth of diverse musical experiences from Masterworks, POPS, Chamber and Holiday Concerts to the Keep Kids in Tune education programs for pre-school, elementary, middle, high school and college students. The GSO’s education programs at the envy of orchestras around the nation, presenting nearly 100 educational concerts each season and impacting over 50,000 students each year in four North Carolina counties.
