Symphony Ball: A Night on the Silk Road

Symphony Ball 2017

Experience a night unlike any other: the spectacular signs, sounds and sensations of the Silk Road.

Symphony Ball 2017, A Night on the Silk Road, promises to be an evening of music and mystery, exploring artistic, cultural and culinary influences from the Turkish Grand Bazaar, to the palaces of Persia, through the steppes of Central Asia, to the Indian Himalayas and the Great Wall of China. Symphony Ball 2017 will raise funds vital to our Minnesota Orchestra while reveling in the musical and cultural tapestries woven by resplendent Silk Road cultures.
