As we put on our very first virtual fundraising benefit, we understand that you may have some questions. Below we have complied a list of frequently asked questions to help ensure you have a great experience.


Do I need to purchase a ticket to view the event?

Yes, this is a ticketed virtual fundraiser with proceeds going to support the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Annual Fund. To purchase your tickets and save your ‘seat’ please click here.


Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, I purchased a ticket or table for the previously scheduled in-person event. What are my options?

Firstly, thank you! Your support of the Symphony Soiree made our transition to a virtual platform possible. We had sincerely hoped to gather in person this fall to celebrate the Bradley Symphony Center however; we still plan to share this evening with you.

Please contact Ana Cook, Director of Partnerships and Events at to coordinate your options for participation.


How do I watch the program on Saturday, November 14?

The program will be available starting at 6:30 p.m. and will officially begin at 7 p.m., we encourage you to tune in early and enjoy our pre-show presentation.
