Thanks to you, the melody continues


The Board of Directors of the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, its Gala Committee, and the Jackson Symphony League thank you for showing up (but staying home) to help SUSTAIN THE NOTES. Our annual fundraiser featured a successful online auction capped off with an energizing online event, on Saturday September 12th. The virtual showcase included remarks from Conductor Beck and collective performances by MSO musicians, along with some playful antics. The online event is now available for your repeat or first-time enjoyment here and donations are still being accepted here.
