For the CSO Latino Alliance, March roared in with a full slate of events. First up, Alliance members, including newcomer Melynna Arreola-Quiroga, represented the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Alliance at the 2023 International Women’s Day Forum, held March 8 at the Willis Tower.

At this event, the Alliance gained 20 new patrons for its email list bringing the group's total email reach to 5,613 people.
The next day, the Alliance and the Purple Group hosted “Let’s Reconnect” pre-concert reception March 9 at the Club 8 in Symphony Center. Ramiro J. Atristaín-Carrión, Jesús del Toro and Pedro Guerrero represented the CSO Latino Alliance in this partnership event. Movement has begun and can confirm that Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce will be the second event sponsor (with Hispanic Pro) for the Alliance's final event of the season, “A Night for Celebration” on June 15. Although Teatro Vista was unable to attend, the theater company has agreed to help promote Noche Alegre on March 31 through its media channels.
