2021 MSOL Parties of Note

MSOL’s Popular Parties of Note Will Be Back!

The MSOL’s Parties of Note is a series of themed parties to benefit the Madison Symphony Orchestra. The 2021 Parties will be a combination of new events and parties previously scheduled in 2020. Due to ever-changing circumstances caused by the pandemic, Passports will not be sent this year. See below for our FAQ on the 2021 Parties of Note. And, stay tuned for party information and registration details in late February or early March.  

The Madison Symphony Orchestra League and the Madison Symphony Orchestra are most grateful to our Party Hosts/Sponsors for their generous support and participation in this project. All proceeds benefit the MSO’s Education and Community Engagement Programs.

Parties of Note 2021 FAQ

When will 2021 Parties of Note be announced?
We anticipate sharing an overview of parties in late February – early March; this will include the anticipated dates for each party. A flyer will be sent to MSOL members and MSO subscribers and the information will be posted also on the MSO website. The parties will be a combination of new events as well as parties previously scheduled for 2020. Registration will be online due to the ever-changing circumstances of the pandemic.

If I was registered for a 2020 Party that was canceled and opted to remain on the guest list, do I have to re-register?
You will need to re-confirm, but not re-register. The liaison for your party will be contacting you to ask whether or not you can attend on the new date before registration opens to the general public and will need your confirmation that you plan to attend. If you can attend, you will be automatically placed on the guest list. If you can’t attend, you will have the option to donate your reservation from 2020 or receive a refund. We have tentative 2021 dates for parties that were canceled in 2020; these dates will be announced approximately 6 weeks in advance of each party to allow flexibility around the pandemic while reducing the need for further rescheduling. 

If I donated my 2020 party registration, am I considered a guest on the rescheduled party?
Party guests who generously donated their registration will be contacted in advance of general registration and offered the opportunity to sign up for the event they donated to that has now been rescheduled. Payment for the actual cost of the party will be due if you choose to attend. The party liaison will let you know the amount. It will be only the actual cost (which is not tax deductible) because you have already donated your original registration. 

I was on the waitlist for a party in 2020, am I still on the waitlist for the rescheduled party?
No. When the 2020 parties were canceled, the waitlists were cleared. If a 2021 party you would like to attend fills before you sign up, you will be able to add yourself to a new waitlist.

When will registration open for the 2021 Parties?
Registration will be opening at the start of each month for all parties in the following month. For example, parties planned for May will open for registration in early April. Watch the MSO website and MSO e-News.

Can I register for all parties I wish to attend at one time?
No. Because registration for each party will be done on a rolling basis to allow for potential schedule changes due to the pandemic, registration for multiple parties at one time may not be possible. Registration will be opened at the start of each month for all parties in the following month.

Will MSOL members have the opportunity to sign up for parties in advance?
No. Because of how we are implementing Parties of Note in 2021, we will not have any advance sign ups. We will bring back this member benefit in 2022 when we hope we can return to our regular roll-out of Parties of Note.

If Passports won’t be mailed this year how will I sign up for parties?
All registrations will be done online on the Madison Symphony website madisonsymphony.org. Watch the MSO website and MSO e-News for announcements.

Will face masks be required and social distancing observed at parties?
We will follow County and State COVID safety measures in place, or recommended, at the time of each party.
