Our series of 15 themed events to benefit the MSO’s Education and Community Engagement Programs are selling quickly! All parties are limited in the number of guests and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations made online through our website are highly recommended to secure the parties you want. You may make reservations for as many events as you wish. If the system does not let you purchase the number of tickets you would like, it is because there are not enough spots left for that party. If you would like to join the waitlist for a party, please email Jessica Yehle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join guest speaker Norman Gilliland for a presentation and conversation entitled “Pushing the Boundaries.” Listen, ask questions, and learn more about the Madison Symphony Orchestra’s April concert program, An Auspicious Debut: Marc-André Hamelin, over hors d’oeuvres and wine at an MSOL member’s home. Read more about Norman Gilliland. RSVP by Monday, April 1.
Our Concert on the Green fundraiser returns for its 25th year with a day of golf, followed by an evening of sweepstakes prizes, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a gourmet picnic dinner, and a lakeside Madison Symphony Orchestra concert at Bishops Bay Country Club. During the concert, Maestro John DeMain will pass the baton to our silent auction winner, Lynn Van Campen, and a winner from the 2019 Bolz Young Artist Competition will perform. Online registration opens soon!
