Doors open at 6:00pm.

Hosted by the Friends of the Symphony, we are thrilled to welcome everyone back to our annual gala! We will celebrate the thrilling continuation of in-person orchestral performances at the magnificent Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa.

As part of this special celebration, the James Hunter jazz trio will perform, along with special guests that include vocalist (and ECSO violinist) Ariana Straznicky-Packer and our principal clarinetist, Kelli O’Connor.

In addition to your choice of a delicious 3-course meal, libations, and beautiful music, there will be a silent auction that you will not want to miss! In fact, even if you can’t attend the event, you can still register and bid online from the comfort of your home, or wherever you happen to be! All proceeds at the Annual Gala are to directly support ECSO’s mission: “to inspire, educate, and connect our communities through live orchestral music.”

Make no other plans for that evening, because it won’t be the same without you. Register, purchase tickets, donate, and stay tuned at:
