Symphony Ball

Volunteer Event

On Saturday September 21, 2013, The Women’s Board of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra presents Symphony Ball, a sumptuous evening of music and festivities in celebration of Giuseppe Verdi. Symphony Ball’s black-tie event begins with celebratory pre-concert reception at Symphony Center at 6:00 p.m., followed by the concert at 7:00 p.m. which features Maestro Riccardo Muti leading the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Chorus and special guests in selections from Verdi’s operas including Macbeth, Nabucco and La forza del destino. Immediately following the performance, Symphony Ball guests will gather at the Palmer House to enjoy cocktails, dinner and dancing to The Bill Pollack Orchestra.

The Auxilliary Volunteers are a group of dedicated music-lovers who assist the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association with various administrative tasks and occasional event support.

As an Auxiliary, volunteers have the opportunity to work with various departments of the Orchestra in completing necessary administrative tasks. These range from mailings, to data entry, to internet searches and beyond. Volunteers are contacted on an as-needed basis, allowing for a great deal of flexibility in the work schedule. Occasional evening and weekend duties give Auxiliaries the chance to be a part of special events at Symphony Center and to work closely with our patrons. Volunteer activities are available for adults aged 18 and older. Please note that Symphony Center ushers are paid employees of the CSO. For more information on becoming an usher, No membership dues are required, just your enthusiastic participation and desire to support our world-class Orchestra.
