As the Symphony’s biggest fundraising event, it’ll be a night to remember. It starts with a champagne reception and concert, with a sure-to-be-unforgettable dinner by Hastings Catering.

Yes, that’s Chris and Idie Hastings, of Hot & Hot Fish Club and Ovenbird fame. They’ve teamed up with Bham catering sensation Katie Wilson on a new catering venture. I’m hungry already.

Oh, and the wine! Susan and Tom Lowder of Holman Ranch, the Curtin Family and DuMOL will be providing wine for the evening—only appropriate for a French-themed concert. A votre santé.

But back to the music.

John and Molly Carter are hosting the 2019 Maestro’s Ball, which will transport concertgoers to Paris. If you love the drama, the romance, and the beauty of French music, this is the concert for you.

Who’s invited?

You are! Seriously, anyone who loves the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and wants to support their work is welcome to attend.

Young professional seats are available for $100, and table sponsors are available at a higher level.

Also, there will be a special reception for young associates from sponsoring corporations after the concert. Apparently, this is becoming a tradition.

Vulcan Value Partners is the sponsor for the Young Professionals Party, and Tre Luna Bar and Kitchen will be doing the catering.
