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 Biennial Gala is a chance for patrons, donors, and community partners to come together and celebrate the accomplishments of the Longwood Symphony Orchestra and partners. Guests enjoy an evening of dinner and dancing, as well as live and silent auctions. Our most recent gala, held April 9, 2016, raised over $140,000 helping the LSO cement its place as a charitable leader in the Boston community.
