THE ECHO SOCIETY (501(c)(3))
FIRST CHARITY DINNER & AUCTION

Saturday, September 7th 2019
5:30 - 8:30 pm

(Secret location revealed upon purchase of your ticket.)

Join us as we raise support for music and arts education in underserved schools and  raise funds TO BRING 70+ musicians from The Southeast Symphony (the largest and longest running African American philharmonic in the USA) to McKinley Elementary in Compton on Nov 9, for our seventh immersive event, "FUTURE."

4 Years ago, the principle of McKinley set up a music program through ETM-LA and watched her school transform to BECOME 2nd in the region for grades and attendance. We are absolutely thrilled at the prospect of bringing such a large, diverse and distinguished orchestra to this elementary school to celebrate that transformation and to help raise funds for more schools to do the same.

The Charity Dinner will be a limited seating, 'Rustic Elegance' experience, beautiful cocktails and an art auction.

  • Delicious food, prepared by chef Gladys Noth of Mbombo who will be utilizing the vegetables grown in the gardens we will be dining in.

  • Live music, performed by members of the Southeast Symphony Orchestra as a backdrop to the evening.

  • Art auction, including studio time donations from Pulse, attending Hollywood film scoring sessions, and beautiful artworks that have been donated from amazing artists will be auctioned off. A silent online auction will open next week.

  • Speeches, from prominent officials from the city of Compton, Anthony Parnther of the Southeast Symphony Orchestra and Echo Society members.

    The Echo Society is a 501(c)(3).
