What better way to enjoy a spring evening with friends than to spend it in the beautiful surroundings of Cantigny Golf Club at a benefit gala for the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra.

Supporters of the ESO and guests are invited to attend "It's a Mystery!" at 5 p.m. Sunday, April 28, at Cantigny Golf in Wheaton.


A silent auction, mystery wine pull, a split the pot raffle, mystery identities, music by the cello ensemble Cellissimo, and dinner will all be a part of this exciting night of mystery. This is an event you will not want to miss!

Tickets for the gala are $125 per person. The menu options are: chicken and prosciutto Basilico; sea bass; or vegetarian.

Proceeds from this fundraiser support ESO concerts and programs, including family concerts, the Stanger Young Artist Audition, ESO concert appearances by area high school musicians, and collaborations with local musical ensembles.

The 2018-19 "Musical Masters" season will end with "Mahler Immersion!," a grand night of powerful and thrilling music that will bring the season to a rousing conclusion.

The concert will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church, 155 W. Brush Hill Road. Music director Stephen Alltop will lead the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra in Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor.
