Corporate Night

Corporate Night is a fundraising event presented in partnership by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association and the League of the CSOA. Proceeds benefit the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s artistic, educational and community engagement programs in Chicago and across the globe.

On Tuesday, June 4, 2024, this year's concert will feature iconic music from the ageless James Bond movie franchise, including hits from Skyfall, Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and more. John Morris Russell conducts the Chicago Symphony Orchestra alongside Broadway star and vocal powerhouse Capathia Jenkins in this salute to the notorious secret agent.

Enhance your evening by purchasing the event package, which includes preconcert drinks and bites plus prime seating at the concert. Ample food stations will feature cuisine inspired by the locales and themes of the James Bond movies, and fully stocked bars will serve specialty themed cocktails. This year's event is co-chaired by League members Liz Branch and Jessica Erickson.
