The Phoenix Symphony Parties of Note Combines Great Music, Spectacular Homes and Gourmet Food  

Eight Parties in private homes and unique spaces throughout the Valley benefit The Phoenix Symphony 

PHOENIX-The Phoenix Symphony is pleased to announce its seventh season of Parties of Note, generously sponsored by BMO Private Bank. This one-of-a-kind program, chaired by Phoenix Symphony Board Member Molly DeFilippis, kicked off on November 2nd. The events offer guests a chance to spend an amazing evening with fellow Symphony friends. Each Party of Note is an unforgettable affair allowing guests private access to world-class art collections, historical locations, stunning views and beautiful gardens. Guests will relax as they listen to live, orchestral music performed by Phoenix Symphony musicians and have the opportunity to meet and mingle with Virginia G. Piper Music Director Tito Muñoz, followed by a delicious dinner catered by some of the Valley's most popular chefs. 

Each Party of Note is generously underwritten by hosts who open up their homes to a limited number of guests. Event Chairman Molly DeFilippis says, “I am thrilled to once again chair Parties of Note - especially during The Phoenix Symphony's historic 70th Anniversary Season. I am extremely grateful for this season's generous hosts, our talented Phoenix Symphony musicians, so many well-known and reputable chefs, our corporate sponsor BMO Private Bank, and finally; the hundreds of guests that attend Parties of Note every year in support of The Phoenix Symphony. It's is a relaxing and fun way to celebrate an anniversary, birthday, or just spend time with family and friends!”
