Help our cause by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

Hosted by the Friends of the Symphony, we are thrilled to welcome everyone back to our annual gala! We will celebrate the beginning of spring training with a baseball-themed Gala. We encourage you to wear your team's favorite colors to this event, or springtime cocktail attire.

The theme for this event is "Take Me out to the Symphony" and as such, we will be honoring our Community MVP, Linda Mariani! She is a member of our Chorus, in addition to her involvement with the Garde Arts Center, many other community organizations, and her professional legal work at Mariani, Reck, Lane LLC. She joined us on stage for our return after the pandemic lockdown period to sing "You Raise Me Up" with other essential workers and our Chorus.

As part of this special celebration, the James Hunter jazz quartet will perform, along with special ECSO guest, Board member, local educator, and vocalist, Lisa Marien!

In addition to your choice of a delicious 3-course meal, libations, and beautiful music, there will be a silent auction that you will not want to miss! In fact, even if you can't attend the event, you can still register and bid online from the comfort of your home, or wherever you happen to be! All proceeds at the Annual Gala are to directly support ECSO's mission: "to inspire, educate, and connect our communities through live orchestral music."

Make no other plans for that evening, because it won't be the same without you.
