Gift of Music Gala


How about a little Beethoven poolside? Or on the front porch?

The annual Gift of Music gala benefit ultimately became “Gala-to-Go” when the pandemic forced the cancellation of the August 28 event. Maestro Alastair Willis and South Bend Symphony Orchestra members and staff enjoyed bringing a musical surprise and party essentials to several sponsors. Over $120,000 was contributed in support of the ongoing work of the SBSO. The concert is silent for now, but the music plays on!

Save the date June 5, 2021, for the 25th annual celebration at the Palais Royale.
