2018 ECSO Gala

The Friends of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra (ECSO) are sponsoring a benefit Gala on April 7, 2018 at the Mystic Marriott, and you are invited to join us. The event is titled “April in Paris” with many surprises that fit the theme.

You and your guests will enjoy listening and dancing to "Rock and Soul Revue" performing their classic blend of music, which has delighted audiences across this region for years. Additionally, we will feature musicians from within the ECSO for a special presentation. The Octagon Steakhouse will prepare three gourmet dinners for you and your guests to choose from. Our silent auction will entice your guests with an array of unique items and special dinner offerings.


Individual tickets are $150, or tables of 10 are $1,500 , and a tax-deduction receipt can be provided for your records.  Through attending our Gala, you become a vital partner in sustaining our mission to inspire, educate, and connect our communities through live orchestral music.



Your table purchase and attendance will help us to:


·                   Provide musical opportunities for thousands of area students through our Music in the Schools program, Young People’s Concerts, and our Strings Ensemble and Youth Orchestra.

·                   Supply low price tickets to our concerts for students, active military personnel and veterans, and senior members of our community.

·                   Bring orchestral music and world-class talent to our region regularly to enrich the cultural offerings of southeastern Connecticut. We present six classical concerts at the Garde Arts Center each season in addition to our choral concerts in Norwich and New London.
