16/17 Prelude Season Opening Event

Prelude: Black & White ...a delightfully "off-key" event...

Monday, September 19, 2016

Symphony Center
220 S Michigan Ave.
Chicago, IL 60604

Chicago Sinfonietta's Associate Board hosts this annual fundraising event to celebrate the start of our new season! Just like our concerts, this event is highly engaging and a little unconventional. Join us for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and of course, our fantastic silent auction and raffle.

Also, inspired by this year's opening concert Unhinged, guests will be invited to try their hand (and feet!) at playing the piano, challenge their friends to oversized games, and dress in black and white to match our concert's featured instrument: the piano.

Thank you!

With your support, we raised more than $14,000 to support our innovative programming and education outreach for the 2016/17 season. Thank you to all who came and congratulations to the raffle and auction winners below.
