Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra

About FSO: Board of Directors

Carl Taylor, president

Carl Taylor is pleased to serve on the Board of the Flagstaff Symphony because he believes that our town needs and deserves a first-class orchestra.  The Flagstaff Symphony was one of the major attractors for he and his wife Holly when choosing where they wanted to live after selling their architectural and engineering business in Atlanta. They became members of the Symphony Association shortly after their arrival and have continued to support and enjoy the Symphony since then.

This is Carl’s second round of service on the FSO Board.  During the first time, he served as Board President two years in a row.  He was happy to be asked to rejoin the Board in the current time of transition and opportunity.

Carl’s interest and enthusiasm for music is attributable to his mother, a music teacher who helped him to appreciate music from an early age. He studied the piano for a number of years, sang in formal and informal performance groups during high school, sang in a college glee club and is now proud to sing with the Flagstaff Master Chorale.

Carl’s professional background includes designing and managing strategic organizational plans for institutional and corporate clients. As Board President, he would like to focus on long-range planning and continuing to strengthen the bond between the community, the musicians, and the Board of Directors.
