Leading the Madison Symphony Orchestra in a piece at Concert on the Green: $1,500 or more. The Experience: Priceless.
2017 Auction Winner Scott R. Cabot said standing before the orchestra and raising the baton to begin Ride of the Valkyries was a truly amazing, one-of-a kind moment. He encourages anyone who may have dreamed of standing on the podium to bid. No need for past conducting experience, either. Scott was a novice who learned to read music and studied hard to be able to stand before members of the MSO with baton in hand.
