We are a community organization. We are by, for and of the Spokane community.

JEFF VOM SAAL Executive Director Spokane Symphony

I

am incredibly proud of this organization and the people who make our work possible. What follows in the pages ahead is a chronicle of the past two seasons, and a torchlight towards our future. You’ll notice the format is different than past annual reports. It’s deeper, more focused, with an emphasis on the people who make it possible, and the data that supports the messages. The detail and care that went into this report mirrors the overall energy in this organization now. We are back. We are ready. We exist for you. 2

This is a profound time. Our collective experience has never been more important. And we have never been more keenly aware of how important our future is. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, the orchestra, staff and volunteers, THANK YOU. I’ll see you at The Fox.

G

reat music has the power to connect, inspire and nurture people universally. Driven by our conviction that music can bring genuine benefit to all, we believe the orchestra can play a vital role in 21st century life and so seek to reach a larger and more diverse audience.

Jeff's second home has always been found through the stage door. Age 10, trumpet soloist

While it will always be our core aim to give high quality performances of great music, we will also commit to exploring music’s potential as a tool for community cohesion, education, and enhancing quality of life. To this end, we will embody a spirit

of radical collaboration and seek to be a hub organization that partners with a wide range of entities across the region. We aim for our orchestra to have a profoundly positive impact on our community and to be a focus of civic pride.

MUSICIANS' RELIEF FUND

I

n April 2020, it was clear that the musicians of the SSO would face difficult financial times as musician services had been essentially reduced to zero. The SSO Board of Trustees decided to solicit funds from the community that would be used to help consequential financial issues. The Musicians’ Relief Fund was thus born. The Fund receives requests from musicians in financial need and every two weeks the SSO office disburses funds according to requests.

MUSICIANS' RELIEF FUND COMMITTEE

These disbursements have allowed SSO musicians to pay for medical expenses and meet financial obligations helping in a time of crisis that we have not experienced before.

Thank you to our community and the wonderful patrons of the Spokane Symphony for going above and beyond our expectations.

“This relief fund was an essential resource for Spokane Symphony musicians who needed help making rent, buying groceries and squeaking by until we were able to get back to performing onstage at The Fox Theater.”

he COVID-19 pandemic presented the Spokane Symphony with challenges none of us had expected, experienced, or directly prepared for. This meant a shutdown of operations, canceled performances, and the loss of all earned revenue. We were hit hard since, unlike many other orchestras our size, the bulk of our revenue comes not from donations but from revenue earned through both orchestra concerts and events at the Symphony-owned Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. Given the disappearance of revenue, the administration and Board of Trustees were faced with how to proceed. Curtail all activities, shut the doors, furlough all employees and restart in better times, or draw heavily on the endowment to fund payroll and benefits for all employees? Jeff vom Saal developed an alternate plan, laying off all staff except for a “skeleton crew” whose pay and hours were also cut drastically, and cease paying musicians’ wages while still paying 100% of health insurance premiums for all staff and musicians. The availability of federal payroll protection (PPP) funds made this possible. Jeff further suggested changing the budget process from developing an annual (seasonal) budget to splitting the fiscal year into two halves, developing fall and spring operating budgets. The advantage of this approach was to maximize flexibility and respond to changes in the operating environment and revenue availability. These changes altered my role as board treasurer. The role of the board is an advisory one, providing oversight with involvement in the day-to-day operations of the Symphony. I saw my role as working closely with the executive director and chief financial officer in that advisory capacity, helping an overworked, under-compensated, highly dedicated staff. Our basic guiding principle was that the SSO must survive in as undamaged a state as possible. The Symphony had to function with revenue available from government sources and projected donations. My role became approving all expenses to ensure that they were consistent with expected and budgeted amounts. It was tough. We all tried to make the best decisions possible in an incredibly difficult situation, and we regret the hardships the organization had to endure.

8

As the Spokane Symphony rebuilds and recovers, it can only be hoped that some of the lessons we learned will not be lost, but will help the organization in its internal operations become better and stronger.

SUSTAINING THE SYMPHONY ENDOWMENT

SSA

ormed in 1981, the Spokane Symphony & Fox Theater Endowment Fund has disbursed over $8 million dollars to the Spokane Symphony since inception. The value of the endowment as of September 2021 is $13.4 million dollars. This provides roughly 8% of overall revenue as defined in the FY22 budget for the Symphony. The national average for symphony endowments is approximately 14%. Funds are used for general operation as well as for specific funding priorities such as the Welty Education Trust and the Mary Jewett Gaiser Distinguished Guest Artist Performance Fund.

he Spokane Symphony Associates (SSA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of about 300 individuals who believe that a world-class orchestra enhances the quality of life in Spokane. They are dedicated to raising money to support the Spokane Symphony, and are wildly successful in their mission each year with Christmas Tree Elegance and the Upscale Sale, among other fundraisers. In 2019 along, the SSA gifted the Symphony a record-breaking $450,000!

F

"I was in a meeting when an Endowment Committee member said proudly, “We contribute the most money to the Symphony.” I responded,

“I THINK YOU JUST THREW DOWN THE GAUNTLET!” And then the next year, the SSA gave more money than they did! We thought, we’re going to do it. We can do better. And we did. That’s the SSA attitude! "

MUSIC DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE health and pride of the citizens of Spokane and the Inland Northwest. The elements that made me fall in love with this organization are still there and I believe that we must now look to the future with a thoughtful and robust plan to rebuild to a steady state that is even better and stronger than before the pandemic. COVID-19 was certainly a crisis, but I believe

o say that my first three years with the Spokane Symphony haven’t entirely gone as expected would be an understatement. When I started as the 8th music director of the Spokane Symphony in September 2019 I knew I was coming into an organization that was brimming with superb musicians, a brilliant, enthusiastic and entrepreneurial staff and a passionate Board of Trustees. The pandemic has shown me that this is even more the case than I thought, and the fact that we have survived the crisis is a testament to the extraordinary efforts, generosity and sacrifices of everyone in the Symphony community. The public love and support for the Symphony is palpable and our recent Masterworks and parks concerts once again showed how integral and important the Symphony is to the happiness,

2020 / 2021 IMPACT REPORT

"I knew I was coming into an organization that was brimming with superb musicians, a brilliant, enthusiastic and entrepreneurial staff and a passionate Board of Trustees." that it now offers us a rare opportunity to reorient our outlook to the future. Programming and managing an orchestra is a complex task that requires the ability to understand and work with a range of shifting problems. An orchestra that only concentrates on high art can find itself in financial difficulties; an orchestra that only cares about financial aspects can easily become stagnant, repetitive and dumbed-down; an orchestra that forgets the broader commitments to its community can lose long-term support. To that end I view all potential projects through the

lens of a triple bottom line. Ideally a project should work well within two of these criteria or may excel in one. No project can be at the expense of any one of these elements.

THE TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE 1. ARTISTIC EXCELLENCE

We must improve and maintain the integrity of programming and performance of the organization, seeking to grow and nurture new and established repertoire.

2. SUSTAINABILITY

All work we undertake must be considered within the overall financial plan of the organization and must be deliverable to a high standard within current staffing levels.

3. COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

We must engage and make a positive contribution to the Spokane region by deploying our talents and assets to improve the education, health and the community cohesion of our region.

he 2020-2021 season was challenged by what is without a doubt the most unparalleled pandemic in recent history. COVID-19 appeared and took over the world in record time. The physical and mental health crises and economic impact it caused are unique. Our community suffered together, but also came together, as we have done many times, and together we move forward. The Spokane Symphony and Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox family likewise coalesced around three common goals: (1) Help those who are impacted and suffering inside and outside the organization; (2) Safeguard this institution which belongs to the community; and (3) Be a significant part of the healing process that needs to take place now and in the future. All of these we did and continue to do today, thanks to the efforts, support and sacrifice of many.

14

Our leadership team at the Spokane Symphony and Fox Theater and the few remaining staff worked relentlessly over the past 18 months, sacrificing much to keep the organization alive. Our musicians remained committed to making music, most often in virtual ways, for our community. Donors, patrons, community partners and stakeholders stayed with us, and continue the journey today. The Board of Trustees spent countless hours working to make sure that the Symphony and Fox Theater would come through this difficult period. The pandemic has not come to an end yet, but we envision a much brighter future thanks to everyone who worked hard, sacrificed, generously supported and encouraged the Spokane Symphony and Fox Theater family. To you, we say “thank you,” and offer our deepest appreciation for all you have done and continue to do for the Spokane Symphony. Your efforts and donations ensure that generations to come will enjoy music by our beloved orchestra. We will heal as a community, we will succeed as an organization, and we will be forever grateful to everyone who made our survival possible.

ELIZABETH KELLEY Past President Board of Trustees

A

s immediate past president of the Board of Trustees of the Spokane Symphony, I am proud to inform you that not only has the Symphony survived the pandemic, but it begins its 76th Season with a robust schedule of performances and educational programming which will enrich the entire Inland Northwest. During this past year of pandemic, we realized as we have never realized before, the power of music to heal, to uplift, and to inspire. Although this year was not the year any of us envisioned, we did not stand idly by. Indeed, we used this time to build our board, to examine our internal operations, and to reimagine how our organization would look after the pandemic. We owe a debt of gratitude to our staff who remained during this difficult period. We also owe a debt of gratitude to the musicians who forged onward with virtual concerts while the very

nature of their chosen profession was threatened. We thank the members of the community who contributed to the Musicians’ Relief Fund, which was devised to assist musicians who were made economically vulnerable during the pandemic. Members of the Spokane Symphony Associates, through individual contributions as well as a record-breaking Upscale Sale, helped sustain us. And a committed Board of Trustees provided leadership and discipline during a time of unprecedented uncertainty. Throughout this past year we were uplifted by you, the loyal members of our donor community. Not only were you generous, but your gifts signified your belief in the importance of the Spokane Symphony to the Inland Northwest and your faith that we would survive what was surely an existential threat. Because of you, we are here today. We thank you for your 75 years of support, and, with you, we look forward to a glorious future!

HEALTH & SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY

General Manager Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox

A

sad fact of the pandemic is that Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox has been largely shut down for the past year, with limited opportunities for revenue generation. However, there have been some bright spots. Being forced to cancel our normal operations, including several Fox Presents events and quite a few touring artists that were scheduled for spring 2020 and beyond was a disaster. The good news is, the agents and promoters of those events have been eager to reschedule instead of canceling. And, ticketholders have been patient, keeping their tickets in the hopes that they will get to see those shows. Last year, the Fox hosted some virtual events, including the Spokane Symphony Gala in November 2020, a successful New Year’s Eve symphony concert, and the filming of “Overtones,” the series of five online spring concerts by the Symphony. We also hosted a video shoot with Myles Kennedy in

2020 / 2021 IMPACT REPORT

December 2020, and video projects with Live from Somewhere, the Spokane Youth Symphony and Ferris Pier Music. Ensuring the safety of everyone who entered the hall was our top priority during the pandemic. We upgraded the HVAC system, installed hand sanitizers, and increased the cleaning of high-touch surfaces. We started an in-house COVID testing protocol with the help of the Spokane County Regional Health District, which required the Fox to get a temporary license from the Washington State Department of Heath to allow onsite testing. Thanks to a pair of dedicated volunteers—Kim Crawford ad Susie Smith--who are retired registered nurses, we were able to test and clear all of the participants in “Overtones” productions to make sure videotaping happened safely. As the state COVID restrictions

relaxed in May and June of 2021, we were allowed to have limited audiences in the theater. We hosted MusicFest Northwest, two high school graduations, five dance recitals, and a wedding, all of which helped to bring in some much needed rental income for FY21. Looking forward to FY22, we’ve had an increase in rental interest for the late fall of 2021 and particularly the first half of 2022. I anticipate a robust slate of events during a busy coming season, although not without operational challenges due to the continuation of this pandemic. I want to end with a huge “THANK YOU!” to the donors, staff and volunteers who have stuck with us during this extremely challenging year. We wouldn’t be here without you.

We are fortunate to have Dr. Frank Velázquez, Health Officer of the Spokane Regional Health District, as our current Board President. His knowledge and expertise has given us clear guidance allowing us to quickly implement important health and safety policies and procedures.

Formed health and safety committee comprised of musicians, staff & board members Upgraded air filtration with MERV-13 filters Daily testing for musicians Implemented full COVID vaccine requirement or negative COVID test for hall admission Mask mandate for musicians, staff, and patrons

CREATING "OVERTONES" DON HAMILTON Dr. Bill & Mary Murphy

B

orn of the pandemic lockdown, the Spokane Symphony “Cinema Division’s” first effort was a virtual gala streamed live from Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox in November 2020. Chief Meteorologist of 4 News Now and Symphony super fan Kris Crocker hosted a memorable evening of live and recorded performances by musicians of the Spokane Symphony Orchestra (SSO).

Next, the SSO produced a bigger show to celebrate New Year’s Eve 2020. This project was not live-streamed, but began the practice of presenting prerecorded shows on Vimeo. The show was well received. Spokane folks were missing the SSO. On Valentine’s Day 2021, the SSO offered a delightful confection of music for sale, performed by Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski and pianist Archie Chen. The virtual music video was available with or without a delicious catered box dinner from Beacon Hill Catering. People loved having a romantic dinner with musical accompaniment by their favorite concertmaster.

And then came “Overtones.” James Lowe had a bold vision to produce a series of five world-class recorded concerts made up of music and ideas, exploring a different theme in each one. James Lowe wrote, produced, directed and conducted them all in Spokane, after gaining a National Interest Exception to the European travel ban, thanks to help from our Inland Northwest legislators. Thus began the wildest of recording sessions: two months of COVID protocols; regular testing; working in the Fox for 45 minutes, and then stopping for air clearing for 30 minutes; recording for another 45 minutes; masks, sanitizer and more masks. James now has a new set of skills that enhance his role of Music Director. He’s a film producer and director. He’s an oncamera presenter, conducting insightful interviews. He has mastered the art of film and sound editing. The “Overtones” series of five concerts generated 80% of the SSO’s earned income in 2020. And now, the 76th season of the SSO’s Masterworks has begun, and

Director of Photography, Videographer, Marketing guru and valued friend of the Spokane Symphony

the filming continues. All of this season’s Masterworks are filmed and then edited. We operate 18 cameras during the concerts, without a negative impact on the audience. The concert is available to view on Vimeo the following Thursday after 5pm for season ticketholders and people who purchase it. It’s a great thrill for Hamilton Studio to be a part the Spokane Symphony’s artistic triumph over the pandemic with these recorded concerts. I hope you’ll view one soon and continue to support the SSO with your attendance in person or virtually. I consider the SSO one of the world’s great treasures and I’m honored to work with them to keep it that way. Don Hamilton Hamilton Studio
