Auction Preview: Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association

MAD-cso-remixEnjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dancing at winter’s hottest party, featuring Chicago’s legendary DJ Madrid and CSO Mead Composer-in-Residence Mason Bates (DJ Masonic).

REMIX supports the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Citizen Musician activities that reach into undeserved communities and brings classical music to groups of individuals outside of Symphony Center.

Each generous gift is an expression of an important value—a shared dedication to the idea that moments of beauty and reflection are deserved by everyone. REMIX, held Friday, Feb. 22, is a fundraising event presented by the Women’s Board of the CSOA. The event begins at 7 p.m. at Salvage One in Chicago.
