Symphony Ball


On Saturday, September 19, 2015, the Women’s Board of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association proudly presented Symphony Ball, a prestigious gala evening of music and celebration that launched the 2015/16 season. Enjoy a festive preconcert reception at Symphony Center, followed by Riccardo Muti leading the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in Mussorgsky's popular Pictures from an Exhibition. Gala patrons will continue their evening with postconcert dinner and dancing. Symphony Ball is one of Chicago's not-to-be missed parties!

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.
