Make Your Reservation Now for Fiesta de Tapas

We’re putting on a spring open house with delicious tapas, wine tasting, and fun prize raffles – and you’re invited to stop by!  On Sunday, May 21, 3-5 pm, we’ll host a fundraising party at the highly regarded Emilio’s Tapas restaurant in Hillside. 

This party will give you the chance to get to know our musicians, while having a great time for a great cause. All the details can be downloaded here.

You can reserve your spot at our open house by filling out the form at this link:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2017FiestaDeTapas .  You can also make a reservation by calling 630-887-7464.  Once you've made your reservation, you can pay in several ways:  (1) by check to West Suburban Symphony, PO Box 565, Hinsdale, IL 60522; (2) by indicating on the reservation form that you'd like to be called so that you can provide credit card information; or (3) at the door.  Reservations are $55 through May 13, and $60 thereafter.

In 2015, we hosted a fundraiser at Emilio’s and it was hugely popular with everyone who attended. Restaurant owner Emilio Gervilla has selected the food for our upcoming May event along with his wife and co-owner Ann-Marie; Emilio is known as the "tapas king" of Chicago for good reason: everything his kitchen produces is outstanding.

Please join us!

Bourbon Street Ball - February 2017

Our most recent annual dinner-dance gala evoked the spirit of New Orleans - with black tie, masks and beads optional!  The reservation deadline for this year's event has passed, but we hope you can join us at our 2018 gala! The pictures below are from a previous gala.

2012 Reception in Elmhurst

Friends and members of the Symphony enjoyed an intimate, early evening reception in fall of 2012 at York Furrier in downtown Elmhurst.  Attendees won fabulous raffle prizes valued at up to $1000 and shopped, with part of the purchase price benefiting the Symphony.  And, as the pictures below show, our guests had a great time!
