Special Events

Music + Merriment

Music and Merriment provides an opportunity for patrons of the LSO to attend intimate events and interact directly orchestra members. Enjoy a drink and hors d'oeuvres while an ensemble of LSO musicians plays specially selected pieces. Previous events have included an evening at Johnson String Instrument in Newton, MA and a Valentine's Day celebration generously hosted at the home of one our patrons. 


The LSO Gala is a chance for patrons, donors, and community partners to come together and celebrate the accomplishments of the Longwood Symphony Orchestra and partners, most notably The Healing Art of Music™ program. Guests enjoy an evening of dinner and dancing, as well as live and silent auctions. Our most recent gala, held October 27, 2018, raised over $130,000 helping the LSO cement its place as a charitable leader in the Boston community.
