SYMPHONY SEASON OPENING GALA
FRIDAY, SEPT. 12, AT 6 PM
THE MADISON CONCOURSE HOTEL

DINNER, AWARD, MUSIC...AND YOU!
The Madison Symphony Orchestra League invites you to a salute to outstanding music champions! Join us at the Capitol Ballroom of the Madison Concourse Hotel for a gala evening and presentation of the inaugural John DeMain Award for Outstanding Commitment to Music.

Begin the evening by listening to guitarist Doug Brown and bidding on silent auction items. Then, join us for an elegant, three-course dinner and special performance by the Hunt Quartet. This quartet of outstanding, young string musicians performs regularly in the schools with K-3 students in the Madison Symphony Orchestra’s Up Close & Musical® program. The presentation to the Award honoree immediately follows dinner and the musical performance. Linger with friends in the ballroom for after dinner music and cordials, while Karlos and Melinda Moser entertain with Ragtime Rarities as the evening concludes.

AWARD
