The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association has staged uncounted gala fundraisers through the years, but never one quite like Saturday night’s affair.

Long Story [Short]…

LSS conceived and created a virtual experience that celebrates the people, music, and mission of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, considered one of the best orchestras in the world.

Following COVID-19 protocols and guidelines, LSS safely filmed live music performances to capture the magic that audiences love and miss, as well as heartfelt messages from famous performers and music lovers.

  • Moving performances by Cellist Yo-Yo Ma
  • Touching words from Trumpeter and Composer Wynton Marsalis
  • Inspiring Messages from Famed Maestro and CSO Music Director Riccardo Muti
  • Plus, Actor Rainn Wilson of The Office challenged the CSO’s own Bassoonist Miles Maner to a Bassoon Battle


The event raised over $900,000 for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
