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 Hilton Mystic.

The theme for this event is “Take Me out to the Symphony” and as such, we will be honoring our Community MVP, Linda Mariani! She is a member of our Chorus, in addition to her involvement with the Garde Arts Center, many other community organizations, and her professional legal work at Mariani, Reck, Lane LLC. She joined us on stage for our return after the pandemic lockdown period to sing “You Raise Me Up” with other essential workers and our Chorus.

As part of this special celebration, the James Hunter jazz quartet will perform, along with special ECSO guests, to be announced soon.

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:
