A Musical Feast Gala Benefit

Music of the Baroque's annual gala benefit, A Musical Feast, is an elegant evening of dining and dancing with a very special performance by members of the Music of the Baroque Chorus and Orchestra. The 2017 gala benefit took place June 2 at the Fairmont Chicago. We're pleased to announce that it was a huge success—with 325 guests in attendance, the event netted over $301,000. Honoring Executive Director Karen Fishman, who retired at the end of June, the evening was a grand celebration of eighteen years of inspired leadership. Save the date for A Musical Feast 2018 on Friday, June 1, at the Fairmont Chicago.
