Key of Laughter

| April 16, 2015 | Parties

The Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras’ annual gala, The Noteworthy Night: An Evening With The Second City, was a night of pure entertainment. The CYSO’s Preparatory Strings and new Steel Orchestras set the mood while 300 guests browsed the silent auction, bidding on choice items like box seats at Wrigley Field. After a comedy-themed three-course meal (think Chocolate Chaplin desserts), guests watched hilarious collaborative performances by the orchestra and The Second City. The laugh-filled occasion raised more than $260,000—music to our ears! –Photos by Tina Smothers Photography
