As part of the launch of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s 125th Anniversary Season, the Women’s Board of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association (CSOA) hosted its annual Symphony Ball on Saturday, September 19. The elegant benefit evening raised a record $2.1 million and welcomed a capacity concert audience for a performance by Zell Music Director Riccardo Muti and the Orchestra, as well as more than 500 guests for the post-concert gala at the historic Palmer House hotel.
